Nicole Dikon

Nicole Dikon lives and works between Oahu and Mississippi. Her work spans various media and practices, including woodcut printmaking, writing poetry, making artist books, installing edible and native gardens, and more. Dikon views her practice as a means of grounding her perspective in the principles of ecology.

Born on Maui in 1989, Dikon was raised all over the Americas. As she continues to follow a nomadic path, she grounds her art practice in whatever environment she finds herself. The key to her process lies in her attempt to mimic the cycles of a natural ecosystem. Everything in the studio has value; from the scraped-up ink to the paper scraps, they all have a function that is considered and reused in the system several times before they are reused again in the waste pile for rebirth. In doing so, each image, object, and place created serves as a portal to a right relationship with the natural world, one where we acknowledge our connectedness, not through an intelligent knowing, but a visceral and intuitive awareness.

After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Dikon went on to earn a master's in printmaking from Temple University in Philadelphia. Her work has been collected by institutions such as The Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art, The Center for Rare Books at Temple University, Kapiolani Medical Center, Sheraton Waikiki Hotel & The Wagner Free Institute of Science.
