Everyone should know about Nick Cave
Some artists stop you in your tracks, make you shiver, revive the child inside and remind you that there still is wonder in what can feel like a dismal world. Nick Cave is one of those artists. While soft sculpture and “plushies” have taken a noteable place in pop-culture in the last decade, Nick cave pushes soft sculpture all the way to Endor. Every needle weilding craftateer wants to be Nick Cave. It doesn’t stop at amazing costumes though. Cave grafittis our waking lives with impromptu explosions of interactive music, dance and of course a plethora of characters too fantastic to describe.
With exhibitions and performances around the U.S. and the world, his work was most recently on display at St. Louis Art Museum.
