Statement

 

Nectarios Stamatopoulos (b. 1976)

Lives and works in Athens and London.

With background studies in Graphic Design and Multimedia Arts Production works as a professional visual artist.

His artistic output stretches in many media and is much influenced by his early stage career as an illustrator and

comics artist containing many narrative and autobiographical elements.

His work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and institutions worldwide, in venues such as

Tate Britain, Royal Scottish Academy, Derby Art Museum, University of Central Lancashire (UK),

Phoenix Art Museum, Reece Museum ETSU, Ray Johnson Estate (USA), Karuizawa New Art Museum (Japan),

Benaki Museum, Institut Français d'Athènes (Greece) and others, and his work has been featured in local

and international print and online publications.

Works in various museums, libraries and private collections in Greece, UK, and the USA most notably MoMA Library,

Tate Library and Ray Johnson Estate amongst others.

Working experience includes communication design, scenography and illustration for various clients

and regularly teaching drawing in seminars and workshops.

 

Using drawing as his favorite medium and with a cross disciplinary use of contemporary media he creates works

expressing and exploring ideas about the essence of human condition in the contemporary urban environment.

Incorporating drawing, painting, photography, installation, digital art, small press zines and comic art, and with

found material from a variety of sources ranging from old photographs, ephemera printed matter, comic book art

and art history references, he creates narratives challenging the perception of beauty in the decay of urban landscape.

Personal mark making, travelling and psychogeography, pop surrealism, art history and urban mythology are

reoccurring motifs in his work used as elements of a symbolic portraiture of contemporary urban life.

Much of his work ends up as printed pages in small run artist’s books and zines or as mail art, exploring these forms

as containers or exhibition spaces for art detouring the established gallery system and creating networks

for artistic collaborations and correspondence.

Participation on recent projects examines the dissemination of art and information through networks

via small scale and portable artworks.
