Nate Hill (born 1977) is an American artist.

Biography[edit]

Hill was born in Berkeley, California, raised in California, Nebraska, Tennessee, and Florida and is the son of two doctors. He makes socially engaged work using public space – both online and offline – supporting himself with a separate career. Hill puts art anywhere he can where validation and permission are not given or even required. Opting to present work outside of the traditional art-world context, he engages with what he describes as the “non-gallery-going” population. Some of Hill's most well-known works have been Death Bear, White Power Milk, and Trophy Scarves. Hill has been featured in numerous publications including Vice,[1] Huffington Post,[2] Hyperallergic, Wall Street Journal, BlackBook,[3] and The New York Times. He currently lives and works in New York City.
