Nicholas Butler was born in 1966 in Florence, where he attended the Institute of Art obtaining a Master of Arts diploma in graphic design, after which he attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence obtaining a Diploma of Painting. Following this he has developed an interest for the study of the styles and painting techniques used over the centuries acquiring the ability to reproduce works of art of the various periods , faithfully following the characteristics peculiar to each period and master.
His production of original works of art consists chiefly of landscapes and views of a certain nineteenth century taste, a period particularly adored by the artist, and of portraits for which he receives frequent commissions.
Nicholas Butler's paintings are included in many private collections throughout Italy and abroad.
