Nicolas Torres was born in San Francisco and raised throughout the Bay Area. He received his BA in Philosophy from UC Berkeley in 2008.
For the past couple years he has focused on San Francisco and the changes of its inhabitants, environment, and ideals. Through installation and public art he produces social commentary on urban blight and on those who suffer and benefit through its renewal. In addition Nicolas builds multiples of rare or contradictory objects where he involves various forms of printmaking. In both cases his work focuses on reflexivity, either in a social or logical realm.
