Nick Van Woert (b. 1979 Reno, Nevada) is a sculptor, visual artist living in Brooklyn, NY. With a background in architecture, Van Woert is influenced by his fascination with antiquity and found objects. A strong sense of history—both natural and human—unites his prolific output. He cites Vitruvius, the early Roman architect who was inspired by nature, as a significant influence. Like an urban archeologist, van Woert combs through the convenience stores, factories, and dumpsters in Brooklyn to source materials for his sculptures, which he then re-presents in elegant works
