Nikos Schizas


Barcelona based painter Nikolaos Schizas creates dynamic abstract acrylic paintings that radiate with vibrant splashes of color, and communicate a strong sense of movement and fluidity. Nikos is an abstract artist inspired by a drive to explore unconscious feelings and repressed emotions.

Mixing acrylics, spray paint and resin, Schizas employs a range of methods, from spraying, pouring and dripping paint directly onto the canvas, to using a mixture of traditional brushes and untraditional tools, such as spatulas, to make sweeping, gestural marks, creating amazing acrylic paintings full of life. A self-taught painter as an abstract artist, he expresses through his work a natural and intuitive passion for the materiality of paint, and an instinctual appreciation for emotionally charged color relationships. His fresh and vibrant aesthetic position occupies a space between Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism and Pop, and seems to emanate from a dreamlike and mysterious realm.
