Nick Howard was born, raised, and currently lives in Minneapolis. He is a visual artist who primarily makes drawings that are composed of strange characters that have a strong narrative sense but are not particularly logical or linear in manner. He uses this lack of structure to freely explore an enduring fascination with how our minds work. He is the recipient of a MN State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant as well as member of the collective gallery Rosalux in Minneapolis. His work has also exhibited at Placement Gallery in Minneapolis, Grandveiw College in Iowa, and The Design Shop in Athens Greece.
