Name: Nicholas Bohac
Nickname: Nik. I keep things simple.
Sign: Sagittarius (I had to look this up. People have told me before, but I always forget)
Ice Cream: Cookie Dough…all the way. Trader Joe’s makes one that has their brand of Oreo cookies in it. And it’s tops. Also, love Polly Ann’s Ice Cream in San Francisco.
Book: Jurassic Park. I’ve read it so many times, and it still blows my mind how much I love that book.

Q3. What superhero would you make your sidekick?
A3. Is George Bush a superhero? He’s basically played the part of sidekick his entire life.
Q4. What’s the best prank you have ever pulled on someone?
A4. I don’t even know. I used to be in a band and go on tour, and we’d play pranks on each other all the time. That was years ago, though. I’m constantly fucking with my wife because she has to be the most gullible person I’ve ever met.
Q5. Biggest Pet Peeve?
A5. People who only post about what television shows they’re watching on their ‘Facebook’ pages. Or people who use the word “there” when they obviously mean “they’re” or “their”.

Q7. Best vacation memory?
A7.I went to Paris six years ago and it was basically the best week of my life.
Q8. Childhood ambition?
A8. Play a show with Nirvana and to be an artist. I never got to play with Nirvana, but I played in a band for years, and that was awesome. And I’m making art, so I’m doing good, I think.
Q9. Best compliment ever received?
A9. I receive so many great compliments from so many awesome people on a daily basis, just because of what I do with my work. I feel lucky
Q10. What do you wish was invented?
A10. A time machine. Oh wait, John Titor already invented that shit: http://www.johntitor.com/
Part illustration, part impressionism, part realism, part of undefinable. Nicholas Bohac’s work has the haunting sense that a society or life was once present, but it is nature that prevailed. Not afraid of color, his pieces are far from a mirror image of the world around us, but an ever adjusting rainbow spilling over onto his canvas. I have a saying, perfectly imperfect. Nicholas’s techni-color world is the perfect reflection of imperfection, and it is in imperfection we find honest beauty.
