Nils McDiarmid (b. 1980 in Edinburgh, Scotland) lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland. McDiarmid has a distinctive style and is a prolific artist, working endlessly at home and in the studio. He has drawn compulsively since childhood. His ability to create space and form through line is fascinating and leads to his instantly recognisable work. McDiarmid has attended the support studio Garvald in Edinburgh since 2006. He works in the art studio one day a week and the puppetry studio one day a week. Most recently, McDiarmid’s illustrative work depicts rappers and musicians of the hip hop and R&B scene.
