Nicolas Fehr is an artist, composer, and performer working at the nexus of experimental pop, performance, and media art.

After growing up in Connecticut, USA, Fehr moved to Germany in his teens and went on to study media arts, scenography (HfG Karlsruhe) and fine arts (HfK Bremen). Characterized by his aesthetic versatility, he uses alter-egos and interdisciplinary concepts to explore a variety of political and personal, philosophical and profane themes. Music compositions and songs often form the backbone of his cross-media works.

Apart from his solo work, Fehr is the singer of off-pop band ooi (Majestic/Kitsuné) and a sought after composer-performer, frequently collaborating with performing arts groups (Yotam Peled & the Free Radicals, Haptic Hide) and musicians (Jungstötter, Ilgen-Nur, Finn Ronsdorf).
