Artist Bio;
Nyle Major began his Art practice in January 2010. Prior to this he had acquired a Bachelor in Visual Arts from AUT in 2005. In order to further his education in traditional painting, he spent over three months training at Studio Escalier- an international Art school in Argenton-Chateau, buried in the deep rural expanse of France’s Loire Valley.

Since that life-changing northern summer of 2011, he has exhibited in multiple solo shows, group exhibitions and many general large scale art shows. He has shown work internationally, run artist workshops, received awards and accolades and completed many commissions of varying subjects. With strong conceptual framework, painting skill and a focus on historical technique, Nyle’s art practice has evolved into a professional enterprise. He has worked hard to ensure his painting is constantly developing and evolving, and that he is exhibiting as often as possible. Traditional painting and art movements in the 18th and 19th centuries have played a significant role in developing Nyle’s art practice: “First and foremost, a viewer’s first impression of the painting is its visual impact. This will determine whether or not they will be drawn to the work and develop a connection with it. Painting with the essence of tradition is easily relatable to everyone, and makes this transition easier”. N.Major 2015.

William Bouguerau (1825-1905) is his favourite artist, and inspiration for a lot of the figure painting Nyle creates. He is “the greatest artist who ever lived and that you have never heard of”, and reached academic paintings’ zenith at a time in 19th century France when favour was starting to lean towards the Impressionists. William Bouguereau and compatriots of his time such as John Singer Sargent, Lord Leighton and Lawrence Alma-Tadema all heavily inspire Nyle’s art practice.

However, not all his inspirations come from the 19th century. He is also drawn to contemporary artists such as Roberto Ferri and renaissance artists like Caravaggio who also possess that particular quality only the greats truly possess and the rest of us try to emulate. - N. Major 2022.
