Nat Trimarchi(Biography)

Nat Trimarchi is a

part-time consultant and artist.

He set up Rha Projects to help people

re-think what art is for, and why

and how people need to do it and use it.

After a long career mainly in the arts he

developed a renewed interest in philosophy,

and in art created outside of the very

instrumentalised notions of it as a commodity

or 'consumable' product. Studying philosophy,

neuroscience, and biosemiotics has highlighted

the need to address many enduring misconceptions about art (including about so-called

'left and right brain' arts practice).

Nat has been a practising artist

for most of his life, in between various

other employments, and he still writes and

records music mostly for his own pleasure.
