My name is James Nola and I’m a performance artist and makeup artist based between the Waikato and Auckland, New Zealand. 

Studying spfx in Auckland majoring in sculpture and design, and later training as a professional makeup artist, I often use myself as the subject of my works. My practice plays on the relationship between horror and humour ; a dynamic that is referenced in the gender fluidity of my characters and questions how we perform and respond as people. I have always used the horror genre as inspiration in my work and in being a part of this course, hope to develop my practice and push where my passions could be taken.
