My guest today is Nicholas Jim, an African oil painter and conservationist. His realism art, and I mean realism, portrays the landscapes and wildlife of Africa in stunning detail. In his own words, Nicholas paints “nature”. He also spends a good amount of time in nature and donates a portion of his earnings to the Endangered Wildlife Trust in support of the protection of endangered species. Nicholas also holds degrees in chemical engineering and has a passion for production. I found him to be an insightful and a well-balanced individual, full of deep thoughts and broad smiles. I truly enjoyed my conversation with Nicholas and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation we discussed Nicholas’ passion for painting nature and his dedication to protecting endangered species, the connection between art, nature, and the human experience, our relationship with the world around us, the soul’s high adventure, pursuing passion, creating an end product, the visionary mind of an artist, nature and artistic expression, art and individuation, making a radical decision, seasons in Africa, transmitting emotion through art, realism in Western art, the importance of conservation, art is everything, balance and healing in society, the art of sports, and passion and conservation in art.
