About the Artist:
Nikolaos Kafasis, also known as Nikolas Tower, is an emerging artist and Illustrator, born in Greece in 1998. Coming from a house of artists, his love for arts, especially drawing and painting, sprouted from a very young age. Since his childhood, he has attended and helped with the organizing of a lot of local art exhibitions. He took traditional art, academic drawing and color study lessons at the “Art Palace” private art school in Rhodes for 7 years (2009-2016).
Throughout the past years, he has experimented with a lot of painting and drawing mediums, including graphite, charcoal, acrylics, oil and dry pastels, tempera and more.
Nowadays, he works mainly with watercolors and oils but he also enjoys using different mediums and mixed media on paintings, especially golden leaf and color pencils. Nikolas’ style is characterized by stylized compositions, organic motifs, flowing lines and abstract elements, surrounding female & male portraiture. Through his watercolor Illustrations of otherworldly, tranquil and mysterious women & men, he is trying to convey a world of silent human feelings that cannot easily be expressed in words; a Cosmos in Silence…
He is currently studying Pedagogy in the Mediterranean University of Rhodes, where he also lives with his family, and he is pursuing a career as a contemporary artist and illustrator.
