RISING Gallery is proud to present “Texas Suburban Wasteland Blues”, a major solo exhibition of sculptures by Nic Noblique. “Texas Suburban Wasteland Blues” will feature 20, never seen before, candy colored sculptural chairs and freestanding sculptures. Noblique bases his work on the idea of 3/5/8 mathematical beauty, suggesting everything in nature can be broken down into those proportions and is a structural spiral.

Nic's functional sculptures have caught the attention of art collectors and designers alike. Last fall his work was featured in LUXE Interiors + Design as a notable 'style maker'.

In 2003, in the early stages of Nic’s professional career, he was the youngest sculptor to have been juried into the prestigious Navy Pier Walk international sculpture competition. Juror David Pagel (acclaimed LA Times art critic) said of Nic's sculpture 'Runner' that because of its 'skatability', that it was one of the most inspired and intriguing sculptures he had seen. He exhibited along side sculpture elites such as Hans Van de Bovenkamp and Fletcher Benton.

As a self taught artist, a proud accomplishment of Nic's was to be offered the position as visiting adjunct professor of 3D art at Hardin Simmons University. During Nic's time there he developed the colleges first fully equipped sculpture department.

Before committing himself to art as a career, Nic designed a new center point concave skateboard and with his dads help to draw up and patent the design, and sold it to Sk8 legend Mark Gonzales (Deluxe Distribution, Real Skateboards, Anti-Hero, ATM Click, 60/40). The boards design quickly became the industry standard.

Noblique’s sculptures can be seen throughout Dallas in the numerous public works projects as well as private commissioned works.
