Niki McQueen

Head full of Sky:

Head in the clouds and feet on the ground,
She radiates peace.
Quiet falls all around.

A child of dark, she radiates light.
The stars in her eyes and peace in her heart.
In the darkest moments, her soul shines bright.

Artist Bio:

Niki is an artist, graphic designer and communications coordinator, with a background in Marine Biology. As our country went into lockdown in March 2020 and the COVID pandemic swept the globe, she rediscovered and developed an old technique of making art using solvent printing and mixed media that she learned at school. Under the psychological and emotional pressure of a world gone mad, she found a way of staying sane through making art. This art is a manifestation of an urgent, unquenchable need for the expression of years of unspoken truths.


She has always been drawn to the places and spaces beyond the mundane, and she draws inspiration from surrealism and magical realism. Themes in her work encompass psychology, fairy tales, whimsy, humour and the macabre. She uses stock and hand-drawn images to create compositions which express her fascination with science, anatomy, biology, conservation and the human mind.


She sold nearly 100 artworks during the lockdown period, through social media promotion, including a number of portraits and commissions. She participated in her first exhibition in Cape Town in December 2020, followed by the Coming Home exhibition at the Imibala Gallery in May 2021. She is proud to have been represented by the Art@Africa galleries in 2021 and has works hanging in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Graaf Reinet, Somerset West and Hermanus.


In August 2021, she placed in the top 40 finalists in the Vuleka Art Competition, with her work currently on display in the competition exhibit at the Art.b Gallery in Bellville, Cape Town.
