Nikos Floros

Nikos Floros utilizes materials from our everyday life, which he transforms into magnificent, original works of art. His unique sculptural mosaics and forms, juxtaposed by the energy of primitive cultures from all over the world, promise to produce a transcendent, ecstatic connection to the human psyche, something that the artist seeks to evoke. Through his artwork, Nikos Floros has combined elements to make an alternate perception:
Utilizing a very modern medium, aluminum, along with a contemporary and powerful brand, he has weaved a new form of “fabric” and mosaic, in order to create unique and original sculptural costumes, and haunting mosaic portraits that evoke the power and influence of these historical figures and personalities. These sculptural costumes - symbols of power, give artistic shape to a material, which is a product of our modern society, wishing to make evident the great strength that the autocracy of modern day marketing and advertising exercises over common man.
Nikos Floros was born in Hellas. He grew up in Athens and has lived and worked in several major cities around the world. He studied at the School of Fine Arts (Ecole des Beaux Arts) in Paris as well as classical piano and classical theater in Greece. Nikos Floros has exhibited around the world and his sculptures are in museums and private collections.
