Born and raised in South Eastern Michigan, Nicholas Hullibarger began his artistic discovery at Siena Heights University, where he majored in Mixed Media and Art History. His aspirations and drive caught the eye of Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston where he later earned an MFA in Sculpture. Now residing in Oakland, CA, Hullibarger's new work focuses on space, relational aesthetics and time.
I am creating a spatial environment through the use of aesthetic relationships, line, colour, distance and form. At its foundation my work invites the viewer to slowly observe their surroundings in-order to bridge the formal relationships within space. My work seeks to visually and socially explore the subtle nuances of these "spaces". I draw inspiration from sources outside of the art world, such as anthropology, linguistics, ethology and the cogitative sciences.
