Delve into the aquatic world with Nick Nikolaou.
An art photographer, a nature enthusiast, a restless creative thinker.
Prolific underwater photographer, Nick Nikolaou completed his studies in fashion photography in The University of the Arts, London(I.c.f). Following his studies he undertook various high-end commercial jobs, collaborating with famous fashion designers and stylists. In 2014 he turned his focus on underwater photography. His appreciation and love for Mediterranean sceneries, especially those of Mykonos and Santorini, combined with his fashion background, resulted in a stunning series of photographic work, acclaimed by the local and international art world.
The transition from fashion to underwater photography, and subsequently to art, occurred rapidly, and as his unique signature style emerged, he was quickly established as the best underwater photographer in Greece.
His strength lays in staging scenographic details, which add a sense of drama to the subterranean world he introduces us to. The artist’s choice to print the photographs on metallic mounts adds more movement to his art, as external beams of light reflect on the aluminium surface, enhancing the sense of floating.
Nikolaou succeeds in capturing moments of intense flow and movement, taking the viewer upon a journey in the aquatic playground, a world just as fluid as the world of fantasies and dreams. Never has the line between fashion photography and underwater photography been so fine. Nikolaou’s art is tiptoeing between the two, leaving us in awe as we gaze at transcendent figurative scenes. He is one of the most established underwater photographers in Europe, while everyone in Greece recognizes his unique photographic style.
