Nicholas Goodger is a Sydney-based artist specialising in Sign Painting. His love for traditional sign writing and his gravitation toward the charm of Mid-Century lettering fonts, illustration and printed ephemera permeate his artwork.
Nick’s passion for lettering and language has developed into work focussed on a combination of considered words, intentionally invoking certain feelings from the viewer, whilst being entirely open to interpretation. His clean lines, brush techniques and playful naivety are a reflection on often unexplored, unique, human qualities. Nick’s work is evocative, optimistic, confident and content.
This body of work is centred around his appreciation for local architecture, spotting interesting building facades in plain sight and the silhouettes embracing the skyline. Isolating specific compositions and elements with the urban landscape, his work echoes the calm of
a sunrise walk, the balmy summer breeze, looking upward.
