“Painting is both my way of interacting with and expressing myself in the world.”
Nowels has been practicing art since 2000. His first solo show was at age 24 on Grand Avenue in Downtown Phoenix. In 2007, he was juried into a solo exhibition at Burton Barr Public Library’s Central Gallery. Nowels continued to show work in downtown Phoenix before returning to Arizona State University to finish his BA in 2008. His work is experimental by nature and is reflective of his Interdisciplinary Art and Performance degree. Nowels
