Oliver Hitchen


Coming from no art background prior to NUA, these past 3 years have been the most valuable
experience for me both as a person and as an artist. I’ve spent this time turning my passion into
practice, evolving from it being hobby and turning it all the way into a career. I achieved this by
developing my skills in Concept Art, learning how to paint and draw digitally and finding my own
style. This progression introduced me to 3D software’s like Zbrush which I fell in love with, it was
another way for me to convey my ideas in a completely new format which I managed to get to grips
with quite swiftly.

Now my 3 years are over, I’ve started taking commissions and applied to study the MA Games
course here at NUA. I feel this would be a great opportunity for me to learn even more skills, refine
them and create a stunning body of work for my portfolio that shows who I am as an artist. I feel
that extra year will help me become that artist I want to be.
