Nicolas Panayotou was born in 1973 in Thessaloniki, Greece. He now lives and works in Paris.

 

His surprising paintings stand out and arouse curiosity. The complexity of his artistic language, supported by a large spectrum of color, plays on different variations of parallels and curves, light and shade. They attract the eye of the viewer and invite him to decipher the hidden codes of the work.

 

Regular bands, that repeatedly decline the colors of the prism, cover all or part of the surface of the canvas. These serpentine shapes, with imprecise edges that resemble a neon tube, form a range of light beams arranged in clusters that reminisce Matisse and give an illusion of movement.

 

The feeling that transpires from the poetic paintings of Nicolas Panayotou finds its source in a highly controlled technique. It stems from its kaleidoscopic spaces, its planets in orbit that, far from being fixed, favor a rhythm and dynamic that lead to a reflection on the human brain's ability to grasp the concepts of space and time.

 

Nicolas Panayotou plays through a partition of light and color that cannot be ignored.
