Nivek Monet 

multi media artist​​

artist statment


As an multi media artist, I create images that speak to others as well as myself about the power and beauty that exists within  spiritual life forms having human experiences. Before I begin creating I contemplate and meditate in order to clearly visualize mentally the outcome prior to recreating the image on canvas or other media. I capture the images through many different mediums such as painting, welding, woodcarving, fabrication, installations and more. I use my hands to bring my thoughts to life to communicate my creative visions to a wider range of views.

My intention for my work is to evoke the viewers emotions. As a result, this  inspires and creates higher ideals in people.  My objective is to have others feel, look,be moved and transformed through experiencing my art.

My artistic goals are to develop my skills to the highest-level possible, to teach and share with the community art appreciation and the necessity to keep art alive.
