Nathan Pendlebury studied Fine Art at Warrington Collegiate Institute and also at Liverpool John Moores University. He grew up in the North-West of England in Chester, Salford, Manchester, and Warrington. Nathan lives and currently works full-time for National Museums Liverpool, he also has his a studio space in Liverpool City Centre.

Nathan had this to say about his art:
“My painting, drawing and photography relates to the presence of man within an urban environment, producing associations without being direct in representational or figurative terms.
I like to use a variety of materials in my drawings and paintings, such as charcoal, graphite, ink, acrylic and aerosol paint. I also experiment with photography. The photographs tend to be abstract like my paintings, and I try to approach them as I do my paintings, in both subject matter and image construction.”
