Join us for our monthly art show, Gather for the Arts. Each month, we partner with the Metropolitan Arts Council and feature a local artist. This month, we are featuring Nick Burns.
Nick Burns aka “Ninja Picasso” is a multi-disciplinary visual and performing artist from
Greenville, South Carolina. His style is inspired by the raw soul of street art and the
refinement of the Renaissance. He incorporates his inspirations with the use of oils,
acrylics and spray paints; creating murals, commissioned portraits, multi-media art
and live performances. Nick uses the tag NJAP, meaning “Not Just A Painting,”
because he believes there is a story to be told in all of his work.
Nick began his art exploration at the early age of five playing drums at a Baptist
church and drawing on the back of sermon programs. As a young child, he was
inspired by the 80s films Breakin’ and Beat Street. Nick developed into a caricature
artist and teaching performance artist in Greenville and has been inspiring young
aspiring artists for over a decade. His professional art journey began in 2012, but
became his full-time passion in 2018 after gaining a residency at GreenvilleCenter for
Creative Arts in West Greenville.
Nick’s large scale murals can be seen around South Carolina adorning buildings and
personal residences. His commissioned work is in high demand as he is establishing
his name among art collectors, corporations, television producers and municipalities.
Nick is active in his community and continues to support charities and ministries that
are called to help others.
