Nicholas Crombach works predominantly with human and animal figures, creating narratives including mundane objects, suggestive titles and abnormal scenarios within his work. Having grown up in rural Ontario, his childhood experiences with animals now inform his art practice. His sculptures frequently addresses the complicated relationships between humans and domesticated animals.

With his sculpture of a cow called Bella, Crombach has the animal perched on a pedestal like a performing dog and clothed in a body fitting coat made of feed sacks.

He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Hayden Davies Memorial award and the Samuel Lazar Kagan award. A graduate from OCAD University Cromback is presently completing a residency with The Florence Trust in London England.
