Nicky Magliulo

b. 1967 Haslemere, England

Nicky Magliulo was born in Haslemere, Surrey and is a
recent graduate in MA Fine Art from Central St Martins.
Growing up in1970s, working class Britain — council estates
and social services — referencing universal rock celebrities
and Reality TV, Magliulo's practice focuses on a slice-of-life
satirical realism. The work employs a sexy, comic quality.
However the tight camera angles and titles themselves hint
at something altogether more unsettling.

Magliulo lives and works in London. Recent exhibitions include
Let It Rock, Paradise, London, E & S, Kino International, Berlin
and Sense and Sensibility, Transition, London.
