Art Books

art of lists book“Duplicitous  charm.”
“Tongue-in-cheek humor.”
“Lighthearted opinion.”

According to a Kirkus review, Art of Lists is “charming mixed media ensemble that invites rather than alienates.”

It includes 45 paintings, with accompanying poetry that punctuates the topics. The  book deals with themes as diverse as famous chunkies, the greatest combos in history… all the way to the most embarrassing political flip-flips in our time.

The Art of More ListsOn the heels of this, Mr. Nieman then published a sequel of 45 new adventurous pieces, called Art of More Lists. Topics include colorful speakers, heroes of our day, and all the things that make New York the Big Apple.

The third installment in this series is called Art of Even More Lists. These images include some larger pieces, historical time capsules, and political riddles. Many have been shown in galleries in the US and abroad.

ArtofListsIVWho says 3 is the magic number? Art of Lists IV proves this series has curious and contemporary “legs.”–that capture themes of music, movies, and international pop culture.

Mr. Nieman’s newest art oriented book is a double-jointed effort called Art with a Story. It’s original art. Original fiction. The short stories are loosely based upon the images, often in an ironic twisted way. The combination of art and stories runs the gamut from humorous to heroic, sad to surprising, whimsical to wonderful.

Art with a Story 2Art with a Story 2 continues the multi-tasking approach to creativity. It contains sixty-seven new paintings and an equal number of off-center short stories which vaguely intersect in a provocative way.

WhatIsMissing_cover-outline1What is Missing? showcases Mr. Nieman’s new art installation and features milk cartons evocative of those missing children. However, in this contemporary iteration, the cartons capture missing American values.  Each is accompanied with a conversational and light-hearted social essay.  As the editor of Freisen Press called it, “A treat for the eyes, and the gray matter, too.”

wantedThe Wanted Book is a celebration of luminaries—both alive and dead—who have made an indelible mark on the world. To honor such people, Mr. Nieman shares a compendium of role models presented as Old West wanted posters. Entertainers, social activists, political figures, sports heroes and business leaders from the United States and abroad grace the pages of The Wanted Book with a tribute that chronicles the wonder of what they have done in this world.

Art with a Recipe is a unique compendium of artistic recipes from five continents, creatively interpreted and easily presented. “This is a very approachable cookbook, given Nieman’s friendly style and amusing notes on each recipe. ” -Blue Ink review. www.artwitharecipebook.com
