Nik McLaren is a GenderQueer artist from Pitt Meadows BC. They received the Studio Art Diploma from Capilano University in 2014 and continued to complete their BFA in Visual Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2016. Versed in painting, printmaking, digital media, drawing, and collage, Nik’s practice is currently focused on textiles. Nik approaches their art practice from a Queer, non-binary perspective; constantly challenging the historical context that has facilitated the current dichotomy between Fine Art and Craft and the gender roles that have become significant in their cultural disentanglement.
