Arts Painting Award 2009.

Nikos has explored a number of ideas in his work;
the most recent involves the seascape and atmosphere
of the Breton and South West coastline. This work has
progressed from the more representational approach to
an abstracted development which is concerned less with
the actual topography (of the place) and a more subjective
emphasis on mood and the evocation of atmosphere.
