Lola Nicol Nominated In Scottish Variety Awards 2013

Scottish artist, Lola Nicol has been nominated in The Scottish Variety Awards in the prestigious, “Best Artist/Designer” catergory.

Lola uses recycled wood and an amalgamation of acryllic paint to create timeless and unique images of influential musical icons including Noel Gallagher and Morrissey and has gained herself celebrity fans in the form of fellow Scots The View, Kassidy and The Imagineers as well as American singing sensation, Lana Del Rey.

Gutter UK first brought Lola to your attention last November when she exhibited, “Swingin’ With The Old Stars”; a collection of well-known faces of rock ‘n’ roll. film and popular culture at Glasgow’s King Tut’s.

Fresh from announcing her exciting news on Twitter on Monday, we spoke exclusively to Lola about how she feels to be nominated and what winning would mean to her . . .

How does it feel to be nominated?

When I got the message a few weeks ago, I had to read it a few times for it to sink in. I had donated a print to The Variety Awards last year, and raised £500 for Cash For Kids so I thought I was being asked to do the same again. When I finally worked out that I had been nominated, I was completely overwhelmed and wanted to tell EVERYONE! It’s been very hard to keep it to myself all this time.

What does it mean to you for your work to be recognised at this level?

I’m still very concious of the fact that I haven’t studied Art past Higher Level and everything I do now was either taught in school or self taught, I’m still learning and developing my own style. To be put forward for something like this is a massive compliment as although, I’m doing this full-time, I have constant support from friends and family. I’m still very much an amateur in my field so being recognised at this level almost feels like I’ve proved myself.

What would winning mean to you?

Winning would mean the world to me but just to be nominated is amazing. It would be really nice to be able to make everyone else proud and winning would be a massive acknowledgement to everyone that has supported me so far and kept me going this past year. I always say this but I wouldn’t be where I am without the support and sharing of my work that I’ve had. I absolutely love my job, hopefully people take the time to give me their vote!
