Diaspora Painter Nikos Kypraios Gains International Recognition

The “Steiner Gallerie” in Vienna, Austria, is hosting famous Nikos Kypraios’ newest exhibition under the general title “The Ecstatic Breath of Freedom”.

The well known Diaspora painter was born in Vathy of Samos, Greece, in 1944. In 1972, he moved to Melbourne, Australia, and some years ago, he returned permanently to Greece, travelling abroad from time to time in order to exhibit his artworks.

Mr. Kypraios’ work is deeply affected by artistic movements of the 20th century, such as surrealism and pop art. His early paintings express isolation and loneliness of immigration. Being himself a Diaspora Greek, Mr. Kypraios, who enjoys international recognition for his work, is an artist who leaves his personal stamp on his paintings and is able of turning pictures into symbols, colours into signifiers and techniques into meanings.
