OSCAM invites young artists and makers to claim space, present their work and develop themselves as creative entrepreneurs in our newest concept: Young OSCAM Art Kitchen. During the first edition of Young OSCAM Art Kitchen, we present up and coming talent Nikè Marchand.
Adenikè Tamara Tonye Yetunde (Nikè) Marchand is an artist based in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Her artworks are focused on expressionism and the duality of emotions, and are influenced by both her Nigerian father and her Dutch mother.
Nikè uses her emotions and life experiences as inspiration for the structure within and clarification of her work. The tools that she uses, give her the option to make emotional challenges tangible and touchable. The aim of her work is to make viewers aware that nothing is “common” and nothing is “odd”. She feels that expressing yourself in any shape or form without feeling any inhibition, is a fundamental necessity.
