Nikomachi was born and raised in Athens. She studied Business Administration at the Athens University of Economics and Business. She pursued her studies in London where she attended  the B.A. in Public Art at the Chelsea School of Art and the B.A. (Hons) inFine Art: Sculpture at the Wimbledon School of Art. In 2011 she departs for Shanghai where she studies Chinese calligraphy through which she explores new forms of  capturing water and transparency. Since her return from Shanghai  she works exclusively on her drawings, challenging herself with the scale of her artworks and with the materials she has been collecting during her journeys in Asia. In 2019 she attended an art residency at the desert of Atacama in Chile.

 

For Nikomachi notions like light, movement, silence consist the main inspiration of her artworks. She expresses herself through light or rather in light. She seeks both outer and inner light and travels to see mental or moral light, trying to elevate her work through the light of the spirit. Nikomachi’s work floats or hovers over the underlying layers of colour. There is a luminosity to her art pieces that comes from using colours of similar value in different saturations. The light of the art pieces invites the viewer into the space and the timeless abstraction becomes more about light, space and the divine.

In parallel with her artistic practice, she undertakes curatorial projects for luxury hotels, focusing mainly on Greek contemporary artists. She exhibits her work on several local and international galleries.
