Nicolas Lampert is an interdisciplinary artist and author based out of Milwaukee and Chicago. Primarily, he is best known for his collage art - the “machine-animal” series, the “meatscape” series and numerous images that address political and environmental issues.

Over the past 15 years, his collages have been presented in various formats including digital prints (from framed images to fourteen-foot tall images), 16mm animated films, outdoor murals, stencils, silk screens, posters, and gallery installations.

His art work has been included in the museum shows “Becoming Animal” at the MASS MoCA (North Adams, Massachusetts), The Idea of the Animal at the RMIT Gallery in association with the Melbourne International Arts Festival (Melbourne, Australia), and the Maltwood Art Museum (Victoria, BC) and is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (Los Angeles.)
