Nigel Cox

Nigel Cox was a previous finalist in the prestigious Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual
Exhibition in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, and has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Oil
Painters 2010, 2015 and The Discerning Eye Prize.
Based in London, UK he shows internationally with recent group and solo exhibitions in
London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Mykonos, Italy, Germany, Austria and Ireland.

With a love of solitude, developing thought provoking narratives and in capturing fleeting
moments in the life of a solitary figures, Nigel's work draws influences from a multitude of
inspirations, from the Dutch Masters to the Surrealists, the landscapes of the Transglobe
Expedition and modern culture, with an appreciation for a refined technique that invokes
the past but with a contemporary edge.

Nigel grew up on the edge of a small harbour/market town - Dundalk in Ireland.
In his early 20s he was a part of the Transglobe Expedition’s team who successfully
circumnavigated the globe, via both poles by land, sea and ice, with Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
This three year expedition to the ends or the earth has strongly influenced his life and paintings.
His minimalist landscapes and solitude can certainly be attributed to this period of his life.

After many years of travel and living for long periods in Germany and Holland, Nigel returned to
London, UK in 1989 and has made it his permanent home.
