ABOUT THE ARTIST
Nectarios Livisianos is a Sydney based abstract expressionist painter who uses vibrant colours to create different moods in his works. A vivid colour palette delivers a sense of cheerfulness, moodiness and a little tongue in cheek humour to his audience.
His Greek heritage inspired a quest into his ancestral home Greece where he resided for many years. He studied, worked and exhibited on the island of Rhodes and developed a technique of using fast, thick impasto brush strokes on canvas and softly blending pastels in bright and muted shades on paper, often using his hands to connect with the art. He studied Landscape Fundamentals at the National Art School and experiments with new techniques and subject matters.
His observation of current events is the catalyst for the conception of the varied series of works. The artist’s statement is “Included in my paintings are diverse imperfections, scratches and cracks, drips and strokes, layering and drawings, bent realities and truths, long palette knife declarations and ultimately, conversations with myself that as a body of work creates a perfect wholeness”.
