About NICOLLE

ROOTS

Nicolle Cure is a Colombian-American artist living and working in Miami. She was born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia and moved to the U.S. when she was 17 years old.  Always inspired by art and design, she studied Computer Arts Animation at Miami Dade College and then obtained a Bachelor of Advertising from the University of Florida. She also holds academic certificates from the prestigious Sotheby's Institute of Art.  Her background has allowed her to interact with many aspects of juxtaposed cultures which in turn, encouraged her to create works based on these experiences, world travels, and her own personal emotions. 

Nicolle was selected as the sole recipient of the 'Leaders with Disabilities' Scholarship Award* to attend the Americans for the Arts' 2018 National Arts Marketing Project Conference in Seattle, WA.  Read My Hearing Loss Journal

*Americans for the Arts awards this scholarship to any members at any point of their career with any type of disability, including but not limited to physical disabilities, medical conditions, mental and psychiatric conditions, speech and language, learning disabilities, behavioral conditions, or other disabling condition.

 

CREATIVE PROCESS

Though she has experimented with a wide range of mediums, her work is primarily based on the use of acrylic ink and paint as well as spray paints, oil pastels, and charcoals. Nicolle’s artworks are an unusual fusion of the abstract and the surreal, a contrast of light and shadows. 

Throughout the years, Nicolle has created several art collections ,for the most part biographical. Each particular series consists of works depicting a wide-range of emotions and incidents; from life to death, from sorrow and solace to extreme joy, and new beginnings.

INSPIRATION

Throughout her life, Nicolle has created pieces inspired by many different events and experiences.

In 2017, Nicolle suffered from a sudden unilateral deafness, an unexpected incident that led to other related chronic health conditions. Nevertheless, this unfortunate situation was the driving force for the creation of her latest collection titled The Colors of Sound.

Nicolle's hearing loss experience and the development of her new art collection has allowed her to spark a conversation about changing the views and attitudes towards invisible disabilities. 

Through ‘The Colors of Sound’, I explore the relationship between sound and life, encouraging the reflection on how we listen to our surroundings.

The power of sound is more than a medium for communication. This proposition has yielded the creation of other collections like The Speed of Sound and the Rock and Roll and Other Drugs for the Soul series.

My goal is to continue to raise awareness about hearing loss, vestibular disorders, and invisible illnesses and create artwork that communicates and engages the public.

HELPING OTHERS

Another important part of Cure’s work is the driving principle of giving back to the community which is why she has donated her art to benefit great causes such as the research for the cure of pediatric cancer and juvenile diabetes, as well as public education initiatives. As an animal lover, she is a proud supporter of various philanthropic organizations including ASPCA, PETA, and the U.S. Humane Society, where she has donated both her time and art for auction.

Nicolle's art has been showcased in different galleries and venues in North and South America, Europe and Asia.
