Nicky Alice

"Look in a mirror and one thing is sure; what we see is not who we are. What do you think about when you gaze into your reflection? I see a canvas, a place for creation and an opportunity for the viewer to be a part of the piece”

Born and currently residing in Orange County, CA, Alice has always had an interest in art his entire life. Although his background is musician/tour management, his talents for art have achieved the most success and attention.

“I started working with mirror in 2007. The unique medium and unmatched process has received such a positive reaction from people who appreciate unique art, I was motivated to continue it as a profession, which goes along smoothly with my childhood dream of being an artist.” 

His procedure includes etching and painting in backwards layers on the reverse side of the mirror, producing a textured mirror painting.  If his unique style of work doesn’t set him apart from other artist’s enough, he also uses exclusive natural pigments made from anything from lotus flowers to his own blood in his work, offering a more intimate medium. When asked what inspired this style of work, he added “I wanted to offer my viewers not just a piece by the artist, but of the artist, produced by nature”

Alongside creating art, Alice has his hands in the music business, starting off his career working with rock legend System of a Down. He currently tour manages for rock and heavy metal acts who are climbing in popularity within the music industry. As if that isn’t enough, Alice is also a Dream School scholar with The School of Metaphysics for dream psychology, currently teaching dream work.

“I became very interested in the study of consciousness and the images in my dreams, so I etched them in reflective glass so I can see myself and my dream while in my waking life”
