Nubian was born in Montpellier, France, in 1993 and showed his talent for drawing from a young age, which led him to study illustration. He dropped out of art studies before graduation because he felt restricted in his possibilities and wanted to break out of the formal framework. In addition to his part-time work, Nubian worked steadily on the elaboration of his art and founded a workshop at the LineUp Association in Montpellier in 2017.
This inner world of flying ships, strange machines floating in the air and hybrid creatures conjures the viewer’s imagination. Halfway between science fiction and the realm of stories and legends of its own universe, he creates dystopian scenarios that are almost post-apocalyptic. Even if some aspects of this world seem a little worrying at times, they are never hostile or really scary, but rather romantic and idyllic landscapes of the artist’s daydreams.
For METROPOLINK, Nubian painted a wall in the city and several pieces on the PHV site.
