Nickova Behling


I specialise in painting, printmaking and collaborative, interdisciplinary, performance art. I experiment with both form and materials, creating invigorated paintings with significant surface activity and texture.

My approach is playful, intuitive and expressive in terms of the use of materials and process.

I am an experienced workshop leader and work as mentor providing professional development support for creative people. I am the founder Artahead, an organisation that aims to facilitate inclusive community art projects and professional development.


I am awarded an arts residency at Custom House Studios, in Westport Quay, Co. Mayo, Ireland for 3 month during this summer. I am extremely excited for the opportunity to emerge myself again in the process of painting and print-making, uncompromised and focused.
