Nicole Mano’s work incorporates fairytales, princesses and villains into her artworks. Her paintings are inspired by the essence of psychology and emotion, and there is a narrative behind her artworks that reveals a hidden truth and a message of countless thoughts. Holding a BA from Rotterdam, Netherlands, Nicole has received numerous recognitions and awards. For instance, in early 2021 she attended a reception at the Beştepe Presidential Complex upon the invitation of the Chief of Cabinet of the Presidency Dr. Hasan Doğan to represent the Turkish Jewish community as an artist, and gifted a painting to Dr. Hasan Doğan. She also acts as a producer, having produced the music video for şarabı marabı in 2020, and the music video for ŁV - TIRTIL (Official Lyric Video) in 2019. Additionally, she has sold paintings and works of art at individual exhibitions.


Within Nicole Mano’s Ice Princess has various tones of ultramarine blue. The mixed media technique she uses is prominent where she incorporates on canvas including metallic paint. The artworks are all surrounded by pieces of epoxy and glass beads. Details were added with a 3D pen and topped with a layer of epoxy the display creates a sense of allusion. The concrete abstract art creates a wonderland. The harnessed energy of emotions, and experiences. Nicole’s use of texture and layering of paint creates a sense of emotion. She uses pieces associated with gold, beauty and value in order to create mystery and depth undertones in the painting. The admonitions we hear from others turns into clichés. The loss of value and impact draws our attention to the viewer.
