Nikos Apelaths is a young artist who isn’t afraid to take beautiful chances in the field of surrealism. He is quickly mastering the ability to take us into his dream-like visions and is an artist to watch for years to come.
In Nikos own words:
“I was born in 1983 in Greece, in a small town in the prefecture of Serres Siderocastron. I always wanted to learn to paint but never did. Then, photo came into my life about a year and half ago, and I have been working with Adobe PhotoShop for about eight months now. Through the website deviantArt, tutorials on Photoshop helped me learn to ‘paint’. Through various websites and social networks, I began to present my work. I work as a private employee and do the photo manipulation in my free time, which really impresses me as an art form and helps me to express myself.”
When I asked him where he finds inspiration, Nikos talked about Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, and all of the surreal artists, masters old and new. He seeks inspiration every day by viewing other artists and trying to learn together. He loves to read, especially books on surrealism and art in general. Color me impressed by this artist.
