Nathan Foxton is a painter who loves color, the material quality of paint, the human form, and space. Originating from Rochester, New York, he grew up speaking German. Raised in a pre-internet household, he drew his visual culture from library books, comics, some TV, and an active imagination in nature. He has studied art across the eastern United States, most recently attaining his MFA from Indiana University, Bloomington. For the past five years he has been painting in Indianapolis, Indiana, and is actively engaged in the city’s art scene through exhibiting, curating, teaching, writing, and judging.
