Nick Lakowski is a Vancouver based artist. He holds a BFA in studio art from Emily Carr University (2004) and an MFA in studio art from the University of British Columbia (2012).

His work is grounded in a commitment to grassroots community projects, including experience as a teacher, muralist, volunteer, board member, curator, and events facilitator for a variety of local schools, businesses, festivals, DIY art spaces, and artist-run galleries.

His current work with acrylics draws anxiously and humorously from the overly deterministic discipline of neurobiology, the world of commercial painting and paint manufacturing, various indexes and orders of colour, the reactive procedure of painting itself, and a mystical hysteria towards resuscitation and intensive care medicine.
