Nikolas Antoniou was born in Larnaca, Cyprus, in 1988. He received his degree in 2012 from the University of Western Macedonia's Department of Fine and Applied Arts in Greece, where he closely collaborated with professors and artists Harris Kondosphyris and Manolis Polymeri.
His paintings do not stem from a specific idea or theme. He consciously avoids focusing on specific questions or particular answers and instead creates new pictures, which generate unknown questions. Thus, the artist paints vague spaces, with objects that appear to be misplaced, both in time and dimension, next to disjointed items, with figures lost in an intense painterly environment, but which eventually coexist and interact, giving meaning to their existence, telling a story, and expressing a sentiment.
