Nikos Papadopoulos makes black-and-white, pointillist ink and pencil drawings that reflect on nature in its different forms. He makes also installations based on paper and organic elements like soil and plants. Nikos grew up in the Greek countryside near Corfu and now lives in Athens. He worked as a nurse for many years before quitting to focus on being a full-time artist. He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts, where he received a postgraduate degree. He has had solo exhibitions in Greece, Belgium and France and his work has been included in group shows in Greece, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, Spain, France and Germany. In 2014, he won the Greek award for CERN, funded by Onassis Cultural Center. He is part of the Filopappou Group, an art collective in Athens.
One of Nikos' art installations is a Japanese Zen Garden created from around two and a half million handmade cotton pebbles.
