Nick Napoletano is a painter, muralist, and designer known for hyperrealist works brimming with allegory and symbolism. He uses the human figure as “a vehicle to explore and document various facets of the human condition as they relate to both the individual and the universal whole.” His installations are meant to function as a mirror, identifying a truth about the community, while paving the way for positive change. His work can be found in galleries and museums internationally, including the collections of Amway and the New Britain Museum of American Art. He recently exhibited at Jerald Melberg Gallery and at the Mint Museum, and he is currently painting a series of large-scale exterior murals in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina. Nick has expanded his work into the fields of augmented and virtual reality. He earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts at the University of Hartford, Connecticut.
