Nicola Katsikis

Born and raised in Atlanta, Nicola Katsikis moved to Los Angeles embracing art as a lifestyle and surrounding herself with artists. Nicola draws upon her extensive background in design and color but also keeps working on new ideas, experimenting with new materials and techniques. In the studio, nothing matters but the creation unfolding in front of her; the results can feel serendipitous, unforeseen, opportune.

Nicola has been intrigued by graffiti from a young age, observing subway cars with colorful images. “I’ve always used the urban landscape as my inspiration, finding beauty where others may see grime. Graffiti is a natural expression of people’s feelings and emotions.” Photography has been her lifelong passion and she observes her surroundings, including train yards and alleys to find intriguing motives to photograph.
