Nikos Angelidis’ new exhibition comprises of 27 artworks, which he created since 2018. Seven years after his previous show at Skoufa Gallery, Angelidis’ work is still defined by a skilled, realistic depiction of dreamy scenes, a love for the detail and an absence of any linear or atmospheric perspective. In these new artworks, narration is exceeded by a deep personal humor, expressed by riddles and puzzles. His mixed media constructions are in concurrence with his paintings, becoming 3-dimensional toys of his pictorial visions.
