Nick Kokis' Profile
I was born and raised in Montreal, studied fine arts at Dawson College and Concordia University.
My early artistic endeavours dealt with humanism, mythology and morals, mainly through printmaking, in particular woodcuts.
16 years ago I had the great luck to meet a Newfoundland girl. She and I relocated on the most easterly point in North America and nature took me over. I returned to drawing and painting animals, which was a passion of mine as a child, and I began painting the great outdoors, the ocean, the rugged cliffs and the woods.
Between the mandatory day job (artist is fun, but starving isn't), teaching some art classes, hiking with my girlfriend and our spirited hound, I have managed to find a wealth of time to devote myself to painting and printmaking.
