Born in 1962 Nicholas Jolly initially studied Fine Art at Gloucestershire College of Art. Shortly after graduating, a self portrait was accepted for the John Player Portrait Awards at National Portrait Gallery in London, where it was bought by the art critic Brian Sewell. This was to start a series of events that culminated in a widely publicized exhibition of Ten Young Painters of Promise, 1995. Encouraged by his early success Nicholas spent three-years as a student at the Royal Academy, London, where he developed a growing affinity with a new generation of figurative painting coming out of Germany and Scotland. On graduating he began to exhibit frequently in London. His success continued to grow, with his work becoming exhibited widely in the US and in Europe.
