Born in 80’s and raised in NYC, Nick Georgiou works have been exhibited Black Rat Press, Andipa Modern galleries in London, the recent solo exhibition in Tucson as well as several shows has been seen in the New York area. Georgiou creates meticulously hand-stitched newsprint sculpture, which he integrates into the urban environment. Paper scraps from books and newspapers to creative beautiful portraits and sculptures.
My art is inspired by the death of the printed word. Books and newspapers are becoming artifacts of the 21st century. As a society we’re shifting away from print consumption and heading straight towards full digital lives. My sculptures are products of their environment —both literally and figuratively. As often as I can, I use local newspapers to add authenticity, and the form the sculpture takes is a reflection of the personal connection I feel to that particular city.
