Nikolai Almeida

Born there, moved here, lived everywhere. Not being tethered to a single identity means being willing to explore any, to be immersed and to question it. This attitude followed through into university where he graduated Architecture, as well as Spatial Planning, guided by the creative forces at both the University of Nottingham and the CASS.

To keep the spark alive, he enters architecture competitions and enrols in short courses like Casting or Experimental Printmaking in his spare time.

He tends to focus on the process of making, finding beauty in how a design is formed, realising that sometimes the best designs are arrived at through reinvention: we know how to get there, but try to get lost along the way...

He has painted, screenprinted, foiled, gilded, flocked, inked, or drawn his way through every card he has ever given someone
