Chalkboards & Artisan Signs by Nickolas Gentry

A chalkboard sign adds a stylish and personal touch to welcome your guests on your special day.

Artist Nickolas Gentry has been hand-painting chalkboards since 1989 and brings much more than mere text to the message.

His bespoke masterpieces evoke your personality and style.

They do not smudge and will not run off in the event of a shower.

Nickolas recently displayed his work at the Same Same Weddings Expo at Brisbane Powerhouse and said, “After years of seeing the joy chalkboards can add to a wedding, it puts a smile on my face to be able to bring the same joy to my own community.”

His work is executed in a vibrant, impressionistic style, which – while still retaining its representational roots, incorporates abstract and photographic elements, resulting in a uniquely contemporary yet traditional fusion.
