One to Watch

Niki Hare

British artist Niki Hare says she paints in order “to stave off the nausea”. Her work dissects and explores the world around her, breaking it down into frames, maps, diagrams and aerial views. Niki only started exhibiting this year and has already taken part in three shows in the UK, as well as a show in Cologne, Germany, and a project in the US. Her work was selected from almost 1,000 entries for the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Self-Portraiture competition and was exhibited alongside paintings by some of Britain’s leading portrait artists at the Mall Galleries in London.
