Nate Hill (born 1977) is an American artist.
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, Huffington Post, Hyperallergic, Wall Street Journal, BlackBook, and The New York Times. He currently lives and works in New York City.
