Rein Nomm
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Of all lies, art is the least untrue;

I am an artist and visual explorer who uses paint, clay, stone, wire, wood, paper, and pixels to create and discover new visual worlds. My work has evolved from recording the beauty and variety of the external world to creating my own imaginary worlds, as evidenced in my paintings, sculptures and digital works. My work embodies the stylistic undercurrents of Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, and a dash of Dada; as well as reflecting my Northern European roots and the influences of a formal graduate education in art history and philosophy.

My work has been displayed or published by a variety of organizations including: the Saatchi Gallery Online, the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, the BBC Collective Gallery; Downtown LA Life Magazine International; Boletin del Instituto Andaluz del Patrimonio Historico (PH 60) in Seville, Spain; Qind Magazine (London, England), Green Hills Literary Lantern, Detroit Free Press, File Magazine, Flak Photo, the permanent collection of the Meteor Photo Gallery, and the Agitatto Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland, My work is also in private collections in Europe and the U.S. I have shown my work in a one-man show and in numerous group shows in the US. Since 1995 when I created my website, my work has been viewed by more than 3 million people worldwide and over 2 million people on Flickr..

I am a self-taught artist who has been honing his artistic skills and aesthetic sense for over 35 years. I have worked as a professional photographer, off and on, for 18 years, undertaking assignments as diverse as architectural photography, executive portraits, special events and product packaging. I also have taught art history, philosophy and logic at various colleges and universities in Michigan and was chairman of the Humanities department at Duns Scotus College in the 1970s. I have two Masters degrees, one in Humanities and the other in Philosophy from Wayne State University.

I was born in a displaced persons (DP) camp in Augsburg, Germany of Estonian parents, and I immigrated to the United States in 1950. I grew up in Detroit and currently live in Plymouth, Michigan with my wife.
