Nigel Clouse (American, b. 1978) is an artist best known for pop surrealistic digital composites incorporating femme fatales, pop culture references, and dystopian themes. These graphic elements are combined to form alternate realities where the fabled American Dream exists only in myth. The artist’s work is influenced by classic film, literature, television, science, technology, and social commentary.
Clouse was born and raised in the Rust Belt in the rural community of Winchester, Indiana. He received a bachelor’s degree in digital design from the Art Academy of Cincinnati and worked as a creative for over a decade in the American Southwest. He left the design industry to follow his passion for art and currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
