Hello! My name is Hollis Nelson and I am an artist living and working out of East Vancouver. Welcome to my online portfolio! Here you will find the visual story of my artistic journey, thus far. I obtained my Diploma of Fine Art from Langara College in 2009. After that I went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in April 2013. Though my concentration at art school was drawing, I took a wide range of classes, giving me experience in print making, painting, ceramics and installation art.
I have always had a lot of love for the thrift shop experience. Growing up my mother would often take me to Value Village. Hunting through other peoples trash for treasures was always a thrill. This dialogue of giving the discarded a new life lines my body of work.
