My work is a reflection of my inner self, an honest statement exploring race, sexuality, hatred and violence. Recreated historical dreams wishes to confront the audience with a dark subject matter that screams at you. I am the Freak. And you call me crazy. You are privy to a great becoming, but you recognize nothing. To me, you are a slug in the sun. You are an ant in the afterbirth. It is your nature to do one thing correctly. Before me, you rightly tremble. But, fear is not what you owe me. You owe me everything. A playground of hell unleashed, I execute within my work with great vengeance and furious rage those who attempt to kill my brothers and you will know my name is Nicola Freeakpong when I lay my revenge upon thee.“I have some things I’d love to show you”.

I’m an emerging British artist, born in  Britain, Epsom  in 1987 I have always been an artist since I was a child. Its a love affair!

I’m actually not sure were it came  from, It something that’s always been there in my early life. A mystery.  It definitely never came from my  parent’s who are not artist’s and who were very conservative and traditional.

I’m an self taught artist, I went to Art school but my thoughts and ideas were  always independent and at all times following my intuition.

I had the  privilege being featured in the Saatchi gallery’ Paper’, Exhibition in 2013, it was the best experience if my life. A very special evening.

I’m a watercolour and digital artist. I also cover drawing, and poetry. I’m explorative in the medium’s I do. I  attempt to be creative as possible, Artist’s try everything to get better!

My work is very fluid, anything goes, there’s no restrictions I paint exactly what I  feel whether its beautiful or revolting. Art is expressive nothing is written in stone. It’s liberal!

I don’t know were it comes from its deep rooted and psychological, I’m still trying to understand the root of my inner self before I can declare to the world.

The medium I have used has always been simple and manageable I don’t like anything complex. I  have been  successful in my practice. I don’t need to change it.

My heroes and mentors are: Marques De Sade,Hieronymus Bosch,Hogarth, Otto Dix,Henry Darger, Salvador Dali, Tom of Finland, Paul McCarthy,Grayson  Perry, David Lachapelle,The Chapman Brother’s and Kristern Hornsleth.

The world influences me, anything that trigger’s an interest. My eye is a camera I’m forever taking pictures then using the images to its very best!

I’m always making work,  updating myself, keeping  active and   continusly immersing my mind body and soul . It’s a obsession.

I’m already beginning to grow as an artist, there are bigger things for me to do. You just have to stay tuned and see me deliver !

My advise for artist’s; always be yourself , don’t let anyone or anything bring you down.  You have to be very thick skinned and prepare for the worse and the best. No matter your art condition, keep on making work eventually things will flourish. Fuck what the world thinks.  You are special. Love your art before anyone can love it, confidence is everything.  life is what you make of it make a BIG name for yourself, show the world you are a bright star, let everyone see you glow.
