Nicolas Delage is a contemporary visual artist born in 1986 in Périgueux, Dordogne. With a mother who is a painter, he has been immersed in art very soon, deeply attracted by drawing and figurative representations. On his return from his trip to New Zealand, he became a professional in art furniture and marketed his creations through specialized shows.
What is less known is that Nicolas was also a hot air balloon pilot for several years and that this experience combined with his taste for metal was the trigger / beginning.
While he was in his workshop, equipped with his paint cans, he began to create paintings on steel sheets. Four years later, he started to work with the material itself and with the help of an excavator, he started to compress and crush a sheet of metal, then lacquered it in black.
This is the beginning of a beautiful story, Nicolas is very much inspired by nature and its glow that he could admire during his paramotor flights. He likes to reproduce the shapes, the movements and the lights of his environment. He nourishes the will to ally his works to natural elements, in an original and aesthetic contrast. Capturing the present moment is the message that comes from his artistic achievements / creations.
 Since that day, Nicolas Delage has never stopped using steel as his favorite material. Why this singular choice? First of all, because he defines himself as a Cartesian artist, claiming an extravagant and rebellious art. But also because he transmutes this cold and hard material into a softer and more tender one. His work highlights something between a form of power and sublimation.

The words of the gallery

An email, a call, a visit, pegs in the wall and in less time than it takes to say it Nicolas Delage was part of the artists of the gallery! A sincere, passionate and determined artist who offers me to discover an amazing and powerful work. The steel disappears in the softness of the folds without ever making us forget its strength, that’s the magic trick of Nicolas. I was captivated by the reliefs and the play of light, the shadows that sometimes consolidate the depth of the past, the fluidity of these contemporary and majestic works / masterpieces.
