Nathan and his daughter Sadie
Moving often throughout my life, both nationally and internationally, has had a sustaining effect on my work as an artist. The amazingly rich diversity of our collective humanity has directed my painting to investigate the various ways that we view identity, both others and our own. After graduating from The Rhode Island School of Design in 1995, I finally settled in New York in the spring of 2001. After setting up my studio practice in Brooklyn, I accepted a teaching post at Parsons School of Design in 2002. I have been teaching Drawing and Painting there since. I have found teaching to be the most fulfilling job I could image. Teaching and living in an international city like New York has fulfilled the need to encounter new people and ideas on a regular basis. My work has been exhibited internationally from London to Japan to Spain, and all over the United States from New York to Washington D.C. to Colorado.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design from the Illustration Department (’95), Nathan Bond has focused most of his creative time in the realm of drawing and painting with a specific focus on the human form and the idea of identity and its intersection with portraiture. His work has been exhibited internationally from London to Japan to Spain, and all over the United States from New York to Washington D.C. to Colorado, and is included in several public and private collections. Most recently his work was added to the permanent collection at The New Britain Museum of American Art.
Additionally Nathan has hocked his wares in the corporate illustration field creating work (both two and three dimensional) for companies such as Disney, Macy’s, Gap, Starbucks, and Nike to name drop a few.
He began teaching at Parsons in 2002 and has helped guide students in classes from Freshman Drawing to Sophomore and Junior level painting as well as Illustration Concepts and Senior Thesis, all in the Illustration Department.
