Nic Joly

What began as Nic Joly's hobby has transformed into a passion for sculpting minute depictions of everyday life. His thought-provoking sculptures ask the questions we are too scared to pose ourselves.

My Story

His artistic career was born in a stained glass and metal workshop. Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel, Nic explored his own unique style and began to create his tiny figurines. Each one is made from wire, paper and clay, with the sculptor recently turning his hand to LED technology and 3D printing.

Placed in their own little universes, his tiny characters offer viewers an intimacy akin to peering through the windows into a stranger’s life. But within that glimpse, we can recognise ourselves.

Nic says: “In my own small way, I strive to create my own worlds to ask and bring to the forefront the dilemmas and questions that we all feel day-to-day, as well as highlight the madness around us.”
