At Artspace Warehouse, Three Takes on Fluidity Span Graffiti and Abstract Expressionism
Born and raised in Atlanta, Nicola Katsikis moved to Los Angeles embracing art as a lifestyle and surrounding herself with artists. Nicola draws upon her extensive background in design and color but also makes an effort to keep herself open to new ideas, experimenting with materials and techniques. In the studio, nothing matters but the creation unfolding in front of her; the results can feel serendipitous, unforeseen, opportune.
Nicola has been intrigued by graffiti from a young age, observing subway cars with colorful images. “To most graffiti is just a form of vandalism, but in truth graffiti it is a natural expression of people’s feelings and emotions. Photography has been my lifelong passion. I’ve always used the urban landscape as my inspiration, finding beauty where others may see grime.”
Nicola’s artworks are a combination of her own photographs applied onto a wood panel and finished off with several coats of clear resin.
This artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the artwork are finished wood, and it does not require framing. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.
