SELF PORTRAITS BY NIKOS GYFTAKIS
Nikos Gyftakis was born in Athens, Greece in 1981. He studied Painting, at the School of Fine Arts at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (1999 - 2005) and also Theatrical Stage and Costume Design (2001-2003) at the dpt. He now lives and works between Athens and Stockholm. - “It is in my portraits that the work of art is organized around a dominating, dynamic topic and it is fully radiant with movement, flow and musicality. With the line being the main medium, the curves replace the corners and the continuity comes in place of the discontinuity. The are no contour lines and the figures, the light, and the color, all flow in space and in the surroundings.”
Im sorry for acting this way… I really am.
I am just very hurt about other things and I just dont know how I feel about anything.
“Re-Vision is an exercise in style and synthesis of different cultural icons. This is a serie of portraits of the most representative characters of comic books, films, sports, television and music.”

One of the first things I ever found on tumblr was the painting of the bench immersed in the pool of lights and color. As I explored tumblr for a year I found more and more paintings that were so similar but no one listed the artist. I’d like to say I now feel complete in that I finally found the artist. Afremov.
