Meet the artist

Nick Low

New York in play mode

“It’s not always as serious as it tries to be"

In his watercolor paintings and illustrations, Nick captures the dynamic, inherent playfulness of New York City. The Harlem-based artist and designer has a knack for finding and capturing moments of stillness in a city that never seems to stop moving. Where a row of Harlem brownstones meet the sky, or a flock of birds pause to rest on a traffic light; he works to recreate glimpses of the city he calls his life force.

Patrons of Harlem’s famed Red Rooster will spot Nick’s artworks on the walls; from brightly colored illustrations of local characters to his classic watercolors. The NYU BFA trained artist is also a co-founder of the clothing and lifestyle brand “Harlem Poets Society”.
