Born in 1985 in New York and now living and working in Brooklyn, Nicolas Holiber has a formal background in painting, graduating from the New York Academy of Art in 2012. Upon completing his MFA, Holiber was one of three students to receive a postgraduate fellowship. In 2015 his first large-scale public work with NYC Parks, Head of Goliath, was exhibited in Tribeca Park from May through October.
