Hi, I’m Nic Manshon. Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career.  If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject.  Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning. After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again.

My recent work explores the relationship between two siblings, as well as personal identity. I try to ask different questions about the journey I took to adulthood along with my sister, as well as what the future may hold for us as young, black individuals.

I am mostly driven by fear, and not fear in a” The Walking Dead” kind of way, its fear of not living to my fullest potential or being in full control of what I represent.

A question I get asked a lot is where I see myself in the next few years, that’s a very hard question to answer because I can’t really pinpoint a certain "place". For me it’s about: How many places can I be in and still being as engaged and eager to improve as I feel now? If I get to a certain place, can I take a 180 and still feel good about it?

True Colours.
