ABOUT

 

Born to German parents in El Salvador, artist Nina Nolte always had a fascination with water since her childhood. In her series of acrylic paintings, "The Best Is Yet To Come", water is represented as a social sanctuary for glamorous middle-aged women and their friends.

 

 
 
 

nina's statement

 

Even during my childhood, in Barcelona, the water always fascinated me. With my family we often sailed along the Costa Brava during the summer holidays, I would observe the water during the whole day and try to understand its movement.

This close relationship between my art and water got really popular through my commissioned works in which I make portraits of entire famlies or individual members under water. Compared to traditional portraits, I use the flow of water and light reflections as elements that make the image both more alive and contemporary –  Nina Nolte

 
 

Companies and Brands Nina has worked with

She could be also one of the ladies in her pictures: discreet jewelry, sporty, elegantly dressed, fashionable and kindly self-confident. So many things that gives the desire of having a conversation with Nina Nolte
