Nicola Vitiello (Scafati, 1982)
My name is Nicola Vitiello, aka Nikò, i'm an Italian artist born in 1982 in Scafati, near Pompei. I work with painting, drawing, digital art, sculpture, photography, organizing art exhibitions. Alternating digital and manual work, instinct and rational construction. The subjects of my paintings are, for the most part, surreal landscapes inhabited by anthropomorphic figures. The predominant colors are black and white, used in a continuous alternation of full and empty, negative and positive, of real figures and other totally born from my imagination. For over a decade I have lived and worked in Bologna, Italy. Recently I moved to Zaandam, Netherlands, the land of Escher, the artist who most appreciate and to which I am inspired.
