Nicky Enright is a multimedia artist & educator whose work explores the construction of nationhood and identity, the way language functions, and the theory and practice of borders. His art is informed by his activity as a musician and DJ, working at the crossroads of audio and visual media. He strives to question, elucidate, and understand concepts of global culture, belonging, authenticity, and boundaries.
He has a BFA from The Cooper Union and an MFA from Hunter College (both in NY). He has executed numerous public commissions for clients such as the MTA Arts for Transit (NY), the Smithsonian Institution, and NASA (Washington D.C.). His work is widely exhibited and he has received various awards and residencies.
