A personal experience of loss by nick elliott

Continuing after dark side of my mind Nick has followed up with an equally thought-provoking exploration of his personal experiences of loss.

“These images are an expression of my own experiences of personal loss. They are meant to disturb you, they’re meant to shock you, they are meant to upset you that’s what loss represents.

Nick Elliott

Nick has produced a collection of powerfully hard-hitting and disturbing images depicting his personal loss. Whilst dissecting his own feelings of loss through the years, Nick has pulled on all of his resources to create a groundbreaking, self expressive and visually shocking display of loss.

These images are like nothing ever before taken by Nick Elliott. There are a total contrast to his rock art photography, which invoke many personal emotions from the artist himself.

The self representation of these images is a total step away from anything Nick has created previously, and it takes him from the viewfinder to the front of the camera.

These images will be exhibited in selected galleries around London and Europe next year.

Going country with Keith and Jo…

Earlier this year Nick caught up with his old friend Jo Lopez at the O2 arena in London. Nick had been invited as a personal guest of Grammy award winner Keith Urban, to attend his sell-out graffiti U tour, combined with the C2C festival.

Jo Lopez was guitar tech for the big Countryman himself, which was a great opportunity for these two close friends to get together stage side before the gig. The boys soaked up the pre-gig atmosphere, whilst listening to the opening acts of Brett Eldridge and Chase Rice, who warmed the crowd up nicely. Jo has previously guitar teched for other heavyweights in the music industry including Bruce ‘the boss’ Springsteen and his E Street band.

Also present at the concert was Nick’s friend and agent Lee Williams, taking the opportunity to pick up an interview with Keith and Nick before the show.

Keith Urban rocked to the arena in his usual style he had the 21,000 strong crowd up on their feet to heel to toeing and dreaming of a road trip on Route 66.

The little pocket guard drew in the crowd and sang to everyone as if it was for their ears only. A fantastic boot tapping, Stetson wearing night.

Urbans presents on stage was mesmerising and well overdue after his 12 year absence from UK soil.

“It was a great opportunity to see these two very special guys, they are an important part of my life, and the gig was absolutely kicking. Keith Urban is a great showman”

Earl Slick and the founder member of the Sex Pistols, Glen Matlock throughout the summer have been playing to packed venues across the UK as they continue their tour together.

Nick caught up with them towards the end of May at the Waterfront in Norwich picking it up halfway through the tour. Not one more punter could be squeezed into the venue. And The Philistine‘s performed effortlessly to a cheering crowd.

Nick was invited by Earl to do what he does best and shot the whole show, these images will be released sometime next year in a very special picture book project that the two have been working on for the past four years.

Some well  known faces in the crowd included Dave Donley and the wonderful  Jess Smith, who was Earls guitar tech on the night.

Festival Too Kings Lynn UK…

The remarkable thing about the Kings Lynn Festival Too is not the exceptionally top quality artist’s  that came to play, or the 6000+ strong crowd, or the wonderful outdoor central venue of Kings Lynn.  The remarkable thing about this festival is that it’s free!
