“What  inspires me ,is the human being. The human face and the plethora of its expressions as a record of feelings.”

Painter Nikos Vavatsis was born in Thessaloniki, where he still lives and works. After completing his studies in Graphic Art –in the late 80s- he began a creative journey with a wide scope of themes and techniques: public mural, stage design, mixed technique illustrations. At 2012 the painter presents -for the first time- homocentric paintings, which till today constitute his basic interest.

He has completed 21 solo exhibitions and many group exhibitions. You’ll find his work both in private collections and institution and museum collections.
“What  inspires me ,is the human being. The human face and the plethora of its expressions as a record of feelings. Having a strong tendency to abstruction and through overlapping brushstrokes, I am trying to highlight our finite existence.”

Nikos Vavatsis` portraits behave like a mirror. At first sight they look like distorting the human face, as its characteristics «are buried» under overlapping...
