© 2019  Nikolas Antoniou

Nikolas Antoniou was born in Larnaca, Cyprus, in 1988. He graduated in 2012 from the University of Western Macedonia, Greece, Department of Fine and Applied Arts, where he worked closely with the professors (Artists) Harris Kondosphyris and Manolis Polymeri.

His paintings do not stem from a specific idea or theme. He consciously avoids focusing on specific questions or particular answers and instead, creates new pictures, which generate unknown questions. Thus without great thought, paints vague spaces, objects which appear to be misplaced, both through time and dimension, next to items disjoint, with figures lost in an intense painterly environment, but in the end coexist and interact, giving meaning to their existence, tell a story and express a sentiment.
