My art is my hobby-it's the way I think and experiment with ideas and
concepts. I try to blend the spiritual and surreal together in unusual
ways. I often use omniscient viewpoints to portray just how unusual
true vision is and how it takes shape through the distorted perceptions

the future through the doorways of the past. His use of space through
time creates a kaleidoscope of inter-connected images-one blending into
the other. What is far becomes near and his wrap around visual style
portray just how unusual true vision takes shape through the distorted
perceptions of the human mind and eye. What one discovers is that these
omniscient viewpoints are not theoretically surreal but rather the
reality of true vision. Nirider has truly established an American art
form-an American vision of itself-with all of its multi-cultural
continental flavors-a true American reflection from The Great Mirror of
