About NikosK

Born 1966 In Greece, he lives and works in Thessaloniki as a painter, sculpturer, musician and jewellery designer.

Nikos travelled the world studying visual languages and symbolism from prehistoric petroglyph cave paintings to Egyptian hieroglyphics as well as Aztec, Mayan and Incan symbols.

He communicates his stories and ideas with a minimal visual narrative, based on loans and self-created symbols. His work celebrates the communication through signs, emblems and symbols.
