I was never a big fan of floppy disk but Nick Gentry has changed my mind with his sensational floppy disk paintings. The most epic part of his painting is perhaps the shiny circular part of the disk which mostly represents the eyes of the painted character.
Nick Gentry is a British graduate of Central St Martins and has exhibited in the UK, USA and Europe.
