Nikki Ocean is a painter from the Philippines. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the University of the Philippines in the year 2011. Her palette is constantly in flux as her work traverses an entire spectrum of emotion.
While the mediums she uses to realize a vision vary, all forms fall into representing a prevalent drift of themes: flow, introspection, existentialism, and spirituality.
Painting is not limited to the literal use of paint either, for the word “painting” merely alludes to a studio that steadily revolves around the element of color, allowing her to employ an assortment of visual material stemming from its subject: imagery dealing with light and shadow, illumination, and how the color spectrum is experienced spatially.
