Nick O'Neill Art


Why marine art

Nick is a British artist who specialises in contemporary marine art. Growing up among a family of divers, his passion for the sea grew during holidays to destinations by the Red Sea, Caribbean Sea, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. 

Nick's first diving adventures took place at an early age, allowing him to experience first hand the vibrancy and amazing textures of the magnificent fish. Although he had been snorkeling for years already, learning to scuba dive at age 11 allowed Nick to experience the unique effects of light streaming through water and the changes in colours when in deep water. 



Nick's marine life art

Nick's experience and artistic talent allowed him to develop a unique style of painting, which combines the technique of using pure colour on a dark background, as invented by the 16th century Venetian artist, Giorgione with the vibrant colours and truth to nature practiced by the 19th century Pre-Raphaelite artists, like William Holman Hunt. 

Nick now spends a lot of time in the Cayman Islands diving and snorkeling with his favourite subject. 

Nick's stunning works have been highly acclaimed by collectors and the Press, appearing in Sport Diver magazine, Marlin, Crest magazine and has been selected as a finalist in the prestigious DSWF International Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition every year since 2010 - With his work Highly commended in 2012 , 2014 and 2015.
