Nic Coviello, video

It is obvious that Nic Coviello's work is strongly influenced by nature, but there is a lot more to it than that. He is constantly experimenting with new materials and supports like stamped aluminum and transparent rice paper. Just one of the many things he does is to combine fluid calligraphic marks with a mechanical process favored by Andy Warhol, silk screen printing. We visit Nic's studio in Chestnut Hill, a beautiful little city on the outer edge of Philadelphia. When it is time for a break we drive to one of his favorite places to paint, the Forbidden Trail.

Nic also teaches Digital Imaging and Design at the University of Pennsylvania and is a member of the Nexus Gallery.
