About The Artwork

Travel (Taxidi in Greek) is intertwined with the Greek soul. From the journeys of Ulysses in Homer’s Odyssey to the seafaring nature of our people, the blue of the sky and the sea is part of the Greek ethos. This artwork unites the form of a ship’s figurehead with that of a Protocycladic idol inviting the viewer to travel and explore both literally and metaphorically. Edition of 8

Nikolas is a Greek sculptor working mainly in bronze, but also wood and marble. His passion for sculpture stems from his fascination with the sculpting process. According to the artist: "It is the constantly present challenges, when I harness hard materials, that push me to explore new methods and techniques, in my effort to realise my ideas in small, medium and large scale". He also uses various patinas on his sculptures, "as an experiment of understanding how the same work may be perceived by the viewer in different ways". His work is influenced by the countries from the four continents in which he has lived in throughout his life. "Wherever I travel, I always absorb and process how people interact with their world, especially in places outside the Western canon of living and thinking", says the artist. That is why, apart from history and mythology, elements from indigenous peoples are often incorporated in his sculptures. "I believe that even more than technology, art sparks the imagination and makes you think outside the box": Nikolas is deeply concerned about the position of the human race in a future defined by machine learning and our co-existence with androids and cyborgs. His work is, therefore, an expression of his beliefs and feelings for the future of humanity.
