Photobucket
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)

Favorite:

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.
Color:  Anything bright.  And cool.

Q1. What animal is your spirit guide?
A1. Antlor.  He’s the god of all deer.

Q2. If you had a parrot what would you teach it to say?
A2. Probably “You’re the best” and “Ess my Dee”

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”.

Q6 Favorite amusement park and ride?
A5. Rollercoaster.  Does anybody say anything else?  Have people NOT seen ‘Zombieland’?

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.

Nickname: Charmy, Charms, Mimi, but I’m most commonly known to my friends as “Meems”
Sign: Pisces

Favorite:
Ice Cream: Brown Butter. crazy, i know. omgsogood.
Book: Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

Q1. Are you superstitious?
A1. No, but I have a lot little rituals that I do for good luck, or for very specific results. For example, if I stare at something green and blink 33 times, the light should change from red to green, but sometimes it takes more than 33. Or if I’m trying to shoot a basketball I first have to bounce it X amount of times and use a specific part of my hand to bounce the ball with. I do this until I find the right combination that awards me my basket.

Q2. Best show you’ve ever been too?
A2. The first Animal Collective show I went to, I think it was back in 2004. They played much smaller venues then, which is always nice.

Q3. What have you said you would never do, but have ended up doing?
A3. Wearing high waisted skinny jeans. Those were always deemed “mom pants” when I was younger. My 13-year old self would be horrified to see what I wear now.

A4. Read? no. Words With Friends on my iPhone. I’m hopelessly addicted.

Q5. Most Embarrassing Moment?
A5. Weird language barriers while backpacking through europe. Too many to count.

Q6. If you were a Transformer, what car/truck would you transform into?
A6. some sexy italian car

Q7. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
A7. Tom & Jerry, or those old Tex Avery cartoons. Gosh, they don’t make ’em like they used to.

Q8. What’s your vice?
A8. All things crunchy and salty. I am especially fond of cheese puffs and doritos. And really sweet white wines. but not paired with doritos. ew.

Q9. When are you most creative morning, mid day, or evening?
A9. Midday to evening. Morning is strictly reserved for tea-drinking and kitten-cuddling.

Q10. You were slipped a radioactive roofie by an evil scientist and now have mutated, what’s your superpower?
A10. Alex Mack!! Omg I haven’t thought about that show in years! I always wanted to be able to do what she does. What, turn in to a silvery liquid and creep around? Move things with her mind? Yeah. Bingo. That or maybe the ability to change the weather. I’m always cold, it’d be nice to have a few extra degrees here and there.

Charmaine Olivia blends realism and illustration together in a way that her figures and subject are filled with a sophisticated whimsy.  Beautiful and mysterious one wants to have a conversation with the women Charmaine paints rather than sleep with them. Inspired by nature, woodlen critters can be spotted through out her work along with a a distinct feminine charm.
