Nikolas Antoniou is a painter who resides and works in Larnaca, Cyprus. He is a graduate of the Department of Fine and Applied Arts of the University of Western Macedonia, Greece.
His paintings do not stem from a specific idea or theme. He consciously avoids focusing on distinct questions or particular answers but instead, creates pictures that generate unknown questions. He 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. The process results in a harmonious coexistence and interaction, giving meaning to each entity's existence, telling a story and expressing a sentiment.
Nikolas Antoniou's unique style, merges inspiration from renaissance paintings, graffiti art and surrealism.
Antoniou's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Greece, the UK, Australia, Italy, Hungary and Switzerland.
