Born in San Francisco, Nick Hyde began painting during the city’s late–1960s counterculture era—a time, he recalls, “when the possibilities were endless, boundaries were boundless.” Earning his MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, Hyde rose to the forefront of California’s Visionary Art movement, melding surrealism, psychedelia, and metaphysics into images probing spirituality and the subconscious. His intense, fiery Urp
evokes Tibetan imagery and invites contemplation.
Hyde’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums, including the San Francisco Palace of the Legion of Honor and the Smithsonian Institution, and has been published in magazines, on sci-fi book covers, and in the book Visions
