In the summer of 2018 Gentry created a rhino sculpture as part of the Tusk Rhino Trail. The project aimed to draw attention to the severe threat of poaching to the rhino. Each of the 21 rhinos were customised by artists such as Gavin Turk, David Mach and Marc Quinn. The works of art were put on public display at iconic London sites before being auctioned by Christie’s, raising funds for Tusk Trust conservation projects protecting rhino and other African species.
September 2018 saw Gentry exhibit 15 new works at Opera Gallery in London alongside South Korean sculptor Seo Young Deok in a joint show titled Human Connection. Gentry used a combination of outdated media including crushed data CDs, floppy disks and film negatives to "communicate the feeling of time passing, which is a really difficult thing to describe" with words alone.
In June 2017 Gentry was one of six international artists invited to participate in a collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature and Tiger Beer in an effort to highlight the harmful effects of illegal tiger trade, a cause of the shrinking tiger population. Gentry visited the Mondulkiri Protected Forest in Cambodia in search of wild tigers, but thanks to poaching, there has been no sighting of tigers for the past decade. Instead, he only saw animal snares. "It’s 8,000 sq km of forest and it was once perfect for tigers, there are more (tigers) in captivity than in the wild now." recalled Gentry. Supporters uploaded selfies, then created and shared AI-generated artworks using one of the six artists' tiger-themed artworks. The images symbolise pledgers' collective fight against illegal tiger trade. The physical artworks were displayed at Clarke Quay Singapore and the interactive showcase travelled to various cities worldwide.
In the summer of 2016 Gentry had his debut New York solo show at C24 Gallery. The exhibit, which marked his debut with the gallery, explored human connectedness, remembrance and nostalgia within the unrelenting, digitally oversaturated world of the present. The works, which mostly feature ethereal humanlike subjects, are constructed from sourced materials made by donors from around the globe that piece together a psychologically compelling narrative of human solidarity. In November and December Gentry's work was exhibited alongside a selection of rare works by Young British Artists Mark Quinn, Damien Hirst, and Tracey Emin at Opera Gallery in London. The show, titled 'BritARTnia' also presented the work of internationally established artists such as Julian Opie of the New British Sculpture movement; celebrity photographer and recipient of the Royal Photographic Society's Centenary medal Terry O'Neill (photographer) and Royal Academician and Turner Prize nominee sculptor David Mach.
From 29 June until 6 September 2015 a commissioned sculpture by Gentry was publicly displayed in the Barbican Centre in London. Inspired by the Nucleic acid double helix form, a series of 21 giant sculptures were customised by artists and designers including Ai Weiwei and Zaha Hadid. The sculptures were auctioned at Christie's on 30 September 2015 to raise funds for Cancer Research UK and to help complete the construction of the Francis Crick Institute, a new biomedical research facility at London’s King’s Cross.
In April 2015 Gentry had his first solo exhibition in Knokke, Belgium at Absolute Art Gallery. The show was titled Memoryscapes and featured a series of the lightbox film negative works.
In 2014 Gentry appeared in the BBC Two documentary Making Art Work. Sitting in his studio surrounded by his artwork, Gentry explains how he re-uses outdated technology to create his artwork. He references inspiration by Marcel Duchamp and old footage of Duchamp’s work of a urinal is shown. He explains that Duchamp placed this object in a gallery and called it art, therefore artists should not be restricted by materials such as canvas but feel free to re-use materials. In November Gentry had a fourth solo exhibition at Robert Fontaine Gallery titled Synthetic Daydreams which consisted of works using 35mm film negatives. Gentry also took part in his first group show in New York at C24 Gallery. The show was titled YELL-O and also featured the work of Hellbent (J. Mikal Davis), Adele Mills and Ekaterina Panikanova. Gentry's work featured for the first time in Hong Kong at the group exhibition Urban Renewal at Opera Gallery alongside artists Seo Young-Deok, Olivier Dassault and Yves Krief.
In 2013 a group show titled The Many Faces of David Bowie took place at Opera Gallery in London, UK. Gentry created a replica of Bowie's red Fender guitar using original film negatives of David Bowie, although it remains unknown if the negatives were contributed by Bowie himself. This was followed by a third solo exhibition at Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami. The show was titled X-Change, heavily featuring the film negative and X-ray works for the first time.
In 2012 Gentry took part in a large scale urban art group show titled Urban Masters, in an East London warehouse. This was followed by a second solo show at Robert Fontaine Gallery titled Collective Memory.
In 2011 Gentry had his first solo exhibition in the US at Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami. Later that year Gentry had a solo exhibition at Whisper Gallery in London, titled Dataface. Selfridges featured a pop-up show of Gentry's works, titled Artefacts. Members of the public were invited to donate their obsolete technology to contribute to future artworks by the artist.
In 2010 Gentry's first show took place in a small studio space in Soho, London at Studio55 Gallery. The show was titled Auto-Emotion and consisted of a series of floppy disk portraits. At the end of the year, Gentry took up a two-month art residency at Pantocrator Gallery in Barcelona, Spain. The residency culminated in a solo exhibition and live performance by Petra Flurr and Lola Von Dage.
Nick Gentry was born in Hampstead, London and grew up in the nearby market city of St Albans. He spent much of his childhood drawing and sketching. He attended Parmiter's School in Garston, Hertfordshire. He continued to study art at Ridge Street Art School and the University of Hertfordshire. During this time he was inspired by a visit to the exhibition Sensation at the Royal Academy of Art, signalling the arrival of the Young British Artists. He was later refused admission to Liverpool College of Art when he first applied, but attended the college after a subsequent application a year later. From there he progressed to graduate from Central Saint Martins in London in 2006.
Nicholas James Gentry (born 29 May 1980) is a British artist from London. Much of his artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He states that through this process "contributor, artist and viewer come closer together". His art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology, identity and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media.
