Nick Gentry’s art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology, identity and cyber-culture in society, with a distinctive focus on outdated media. He is best known for his floppy disk paintings and film negative artworks, placing an emphasis on recycling obsolete media and the reuse of personal objects as a central theme.
His portraits and installations treat the human form not simply as the subject in itself, but as the vehicle to carry the medium. His works were featured in numerous prestigious galleries and institutions around the world. In 2017, he participated alongside notable artists such as Mark Quinn or Gavin Turk, in The Tusk Rhino Trail, a London wide art exhibition. His sculpture in St Pancras was made from 500 used compact disks.
