Who is Nico Miller?

Nico Miller is a professional artist that focuses most of his pieces within the Abstract Art realm. He infuses Flow into his Art as well. If you are curious about what Flow Art exactly is, you can find more about it below:

 

What is Flow Art?

*Don’t be vague – describe more* Flow Art is a new term that is finding its way within the realm of circus, performance, community, and individual day-to-day life practice. The Flow Arts has historical and cultural background tied to it that provide a connection of what we do in the Flow Arts to what our ancestors were trying to express. Elements such as dance, artistic expression, prop manipulation, practice, discipline, and other fundamental life skills help shape the basic health and wellness development of The Flow Arts. The Flow Arts promote movement, and movement IS life. To be alive, with oneself, expressing, teaching, learning,  and developing life skills through The Flow Arts is something Nico has discovered, and wants to spread to the world. A basic description of the Flow Arts is taking a prop (in Nico’s case Poi or Staff), and manipulating that prop via dance or technical/mathematical flow. Allowing the mind to focus on movement within the body creates a form of meditative “beingness” state, and drives the flow artist deeper in a creative flow. To be in one’s flow, thought is barely existent, somewhat of a “Life-Dance.” Transitions and movement is effortless, time does not exist, and the things that once mattered, no longer do… A state of blissful healing. Inhale. Exhale.

Flow Art is what Nico classifies his Abstract Art pieces to be. Playing music and dancing, attempting to create flow within the entirety of the piece. He does not keep track of all the music he finds and plays during his painting sessions, but this is a goal of his. To have his work completely and fully documented with how each piece is created.

What is Limited Edition Art?

Due to the fact that every piece Nico creates is unique. It is difficult to separate what is “Limited Edition,” and what is not. The main separating factor is this: Periodically, Nico will post Promos that highlight his “Limited Edition Series” artworks. A “Limited Edition Series” means that each series will be numberd (#1-#10, #1-20, etc). Each piece will be signed, dated, titled, and numbered. Having a “series number” is the only difference between a “Nico Miller unique art piece” versus a “Limited Edition.”

What happens if the art I receive arrives damaged in Shipping?

First off, Oh No!! Nico apologizes for any and all damage that occurs during shipping. It is out of his control, but there are some things that can be done.

Depending on the extent of the damage, you can return the art piece to Nico, and he can attempt to repair it, but for most, this sounds tedious, and it very well could be. It truly depends on the situation at hand.

All art will be insured before shipping. If a refund is what you seek, Nico will honor it, but he will need the product back in his hands before the refund is completed. A claim will be filed to the shipping company for any damage loss, but you, the customer, does not need to worry about that process.

If an exchange is something you seek, Nico will honor this as well, but the value of the previously purchased piece has to match the exchange, unless you are wanting to pay the difference for a more expensive piece.

*No artwork less than the value of the original purchase will qualify for exchange.*

Thank you for your understanding.

 

How to Care For and Conserve your Nico’s Art Corner pieces:

All of Nico’s work will be sealed with either a matte or gloss varnish. This means that smoke, water, and dust will not penetrate and damage the paint itself. However, dust is always a factor in diminishing color for pieces. Nico recommends that you go out and buy a thin, wide paint brush and “dry-brush” your piece. The synthetic bristles will not generate static, so dust will not cling to them, nor will it smear the dust around. Gentle brushing up and down, or side to side is all you will need to do. If you want to seek further instruction, please reach out to Nico, he is more than willing to help assist you making sure dust doesn’t linger.

If you spill any liquids, check the back of the canvas and evaluate the wooden frame. Make sure to pat any wet spots down gently, and do not rub. Air dry can result is warping of wood, so drying the painting as quickly as possible is advisable.

The canvas will be sealed, so take a moist rag and gently dab the sticky residue spill. Rubbing out the spot can result in smearing the liquid, and creating a bigger clean up, which could result in taking it to a professional.

Ultimately, get a glass frame if you want to conserve your painting for its longevity.

 

Should I frame my art?

Nico’s style implements his own framing techniques that are painted on. This style of art does not ensure the safety of the art, but sharpens how you perceive your art piece. A frame is not necessary if you are content with how Nico does his framing. However, if you are someone that enjoys how a shadow box looks, a glass frame protects, etc etc, who is Nico to stop you? Framing art is important to not only the conservation of art pieces, but also the aesthetics of them.

 

What are other mediums Nico works with?

Nico has worked with Watercolor, Oil, Pastels. He has experimented with painting plants, clay, tile, and wood.

 

What does Collaborative Art mean?

Basically, working with other artists to create something larger than themselves. Most, if not all collaborative work will be showcased in Nico’s Projects section found here:

From time to time, a Collaborative Art piece will be listed for sale. ALL artists involved will be credited, and each artist will be treated evenly for pay.

 

Does my international shipping rate include customs fees, tariffs, or taxes?

It does not, for now. When a painting needs to be shipped outside the US, extra fees may apply. Please understand and prepare for these fees to take place. Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Nico at any time.
