Nick Drain is a fine artist born in Chicago, IL, who lives and works in Milwaukee, WI. Centering his thinking around blackness, his work investigates the black identity and the politics of visibility in order to understand the complex relationship between blackness and the object of the camera. He has exhibited both locally and nationally, most notably showing work at the International Center for Photography in New York City, NY and the Colorado Photographic Art Center in Denver, CO. In 2019, Nick completed a residency at the Yale Norfolk School of Art. Nick will graduate from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design from the New Studio Practice program with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2020.
