Nicolle Cure is a Colombian-American artist working and living in Aventura, Florida.
Her signature series, The Colors of Sound, is a collection of fluid abstract paintings that explore the relationship between sound and life – inspired by her sudden unilateral hearing loss (SSHL) experience. She recently released the continuation of this collection with a new body of work titled SUPERNOVA. Through her latest paintings, she illustrates her experience with sound and color now in contrast with how sound occurs in cosmic elements like pulsars and supernovas.
Nicolle has partnered with the Hearing Health Foundation and Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) for several years, where she donates her time and art to benefit their fundraising initiatives. As a result of her work raising awareness about hearing loss and invisible disabilities, she was awarded the leadership scholarship by Americans for the Arts in 2018.
Nicolle’s art has been showcased at Art Basel Miami, Beaux Arts Festival, and other art fairs in South Korea, China, and Colombia. She has been featured in several magazines, blogs, and other publications focused on fine art and hearing health. In 2016, several of her paintings were included in the “Imagen y Palabra,” an art book highlighting contemporary Latin-American artists based in the United States.
Her work has been exhibited and sold through west elm, Showfields, PxP Contemporary, and other galleries and platforms.
Nicolle earned a bachelor’s degree in advertising from the University of Florida and an associate in arts in computer arts animation. She also holds academic certificates from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art.
