Nik Anikis is a neo-renaissance painter with more than 11 years of art education behind his back. His artwork explores deep inner conflicts and screaming contrasts within his subjects. He is inspired by technical perfection and subtle expressions of the human body, whose poetic beauty has the ability to convey a great specter of various emotions and truths.
Nik’s work has been exhibited all over the world, including the Salmagundi Club in New York, and the Museums of European Modern Art in Barcelona, London, Prague, Ljubljana, Maribor, and Miami. “Reawakening of Humanity”, the largest of his paintings, was showcased in the Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, the leading magazine for classical realism, and received four international awards.
Delving deep into the world of 19th-century art, Nik is going to talk about the secret techniques of the old academic masters, and show you a wide array of different concepts, principles, and viewpoints that have been nearly forgotten for the past 100 years.
