About

The Technochoros art gallery presents at Art Project Space (Falirou 66, Koukaki), the retrospective sculpture exhibition of Vassilis Nikolaos entitled "Bodies of Matter, Spirit and Time" with works from 1982 to 2023.


Opening: Wednesday, April 3, 19:00-22:00
Editor: Iris Kritikou, Archaeologist, Art Historian

Vassilis Nikolaou creates figures with an underlying movement even if they are characterized by monumentality, which makes them completely special. Using stone, plaster and brass as basic materials, he sculpts "alive" bodies that speak to the viewer with their body posture, expressing their emotions. The artist's goal is for the sculptures to harmonize with the space in which they are located so as to evoke in the viewer the possibility of identification and communication. They are essentially autonomous figures with personal experiences and real feelings.

The artist himself says about his works:
"Through my works, my evolutionary path is also marked. With the figures that vary in size, but also with the materials and techniques I use, I try to make the artistic result result in an effortless plasticity."
