About

A contemporary painter exploring surrealism, expressionism, psychedelia and abstract art, brushing upon themes of philosophy, culture, and experience.

I'm a 22 year-old, painter from coastal Maine. I've been creating art since I was born, with it heavily passed-down and influenced by my father, David Fickett. I was born drawing, and since then I've been constantly searching for new ways to express my perceptions and experiences.

I started to hone my painting skill at Mt.Desert Island High School, with the help of my mentors Charlie Johnson and Dan Stillman. There I was able to explore art to my heart's content and paint, sculpt, build, dream, and pursue any project I had in mind. I took 16 art classes there and quickly decided I wanted to do this for the rest of my life, I then had a few years of study at Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston but left due to financial reasons. Since then, starting around 2013 I've been selling my art work part-time, both from my own personal portfolio and commission work.

My style is a combination of surrealism, expressionism, abstraction, and psychedelia, with my three-figureheads or icons being Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso. I feel it is heavily built upon the foundations they created. With double-imagery, subconscious manifestations, psychedelic abstractions, eye-popping complimentary colors, landscapes imagined from natural wonders in Maine and from the city-scapes observed while living in Boston I feel I've created a style of my own that can only be further shaped with each new piece. I've had local shows in Maine, sold at some local shops and cafes, music festivals, personal commission work, and online.

Recently I decided to go all out and fully commit to this artist lifestyle and put all my time, energy, money, and focus into creating beautiful art and getting it out to as many people as I can. I hope to spread art around the world, bring color to where there isn't, question, and hopefully improve the world we're all in, and this is the first step.

    I'm a 22 Y.O. painter from coastal Maine. I grew up around Acadia National Park, Cadillac Mountain, the ocean, and other natural wonders that fill Maine's landscapes, and they inspired me heavily. I went to MassArt in Boston and love surrealism.
