Nicholas Romeril studied at Camberwell College of Art and Design in London between 1988-1993 gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art painting and a MA in Fine Art Printmaking. During these courses he won the travel scholarship from the Royal Overseas League International Painting Competition. He went to Mexico and on his return he exhibited and published his work.
After graduating, he opened and ran a studio in Brixton sharing the space with other recent graduates.
Romeril continued to print after his MA at Artichoke Print workshop in London and exhibited in several London galleries. Around this time he worked with Peter Binnington creating Verre Egolimse mirrors for the Sultan of Brunei.
Concerned with the amount of time he was spending in his own studio he opted for a complete change. Romeril left London and went traveling around South East Asia and Australia.
On returning to Jersey, Romeril again, set up a studio, began painting, sculpting and printmaking and started lecturing at Highlands School of Art. He has, since then, held over 30 solo exhibitions and many group shows in London, Switzerland, France, USA and Jersey. He exhibited one of his large ‘oil on stale’ paintings at ‘Romantics in the Channel Islands” at the Jersey Museum in 2008.
Romeril has made many PFA artworks around the island over the last 10 years. The most public is the ‘Herd of Jersey” at the Jersey Dairy, Trinity Show-ground. He has made others small and large scale works for private developments and continues to achieve high profile commissions.
He was awarded the 2018 Artist in Resident for the Friends of the Scott Polar Research Institute. In January 2018 he travelled on HMS Protector to the Antarctic Peninsula. The Royal Navy and Bonham’s sponsor the residency.
In September 2021 Nicholas held his forth solo exhibition ‘And Breathe’ at Thomas Dutoit Gallery in Switzerland. The show features his Antarctic paintings, sea-scapes and the Alps Mountains.
In November 2021 he organized a Group exhibition with Philip Romeril, William Romeril and Danny Romeril at the “Private and Public Gallery Jersey”.
