Nick Georgiou

An impressive exhibition with all the portraits and sculptures by the artist Nick Georgiou. Work composed with paper printed and trained primarily with collections of books and newspapers. Most of these are pretty big pieces with stacks on stacks on stacks of paper. I fucking love it. Nick Georgiou is a Queens-born artist known for his use of the printed word as an artistic medium, but not in the way you think. He creates creatures and art pieces out of discarded newspapers and books, and has a penchant for depositing them in random locations throughout New York City. He creates anything from delightfully odd critters to eerily depictive portraits. Here are some of his most interesting works. Click his name to see more, dummy.
