Tribute to Gaudí

In August 2015 Greek artist Fikos created this mural in Barcelona, Spain in order to pay tribute to Gaudí.

On his website he shared:
“‘If nature is the work of God, and if architectural forms are derived from nature, then the best way to honor God is to design buildings based on his work.’
– Antoni Gaudí

A mural-tribute in the city that elected him as one of the brightest architects of all time.
Barcelona-Spain”

Who Is Fikos?

Greek artist Fikos was born in 1987 in Athens, the city he still calls home. From a young age he painted whatever he saw around him – comics, landscapes, icons and more. At the age of 13 he started studying Byzantine painting under the guidance of George Kordis, with whom he later collaborated for 5 years painting murals in Orthodox churches, while at the same time developing his own personal painting style.

Having a background as both a graffiti artist and an iconographer in Orthodox Christian churches, Fikos is continuing his developmental journey by painting murals in public spaces. The value of these works is exceptional, as it is the first time that the monumental Byzantine technique meets a contemporary art form such as street art. The themes of his murals emanate from the Orthodox Christian tradition and ancient Greek mythology.

Fikos In Ukraine

Greek street artist Fikos created the biggest Byzantine painting in the world.

As a part of the Mural Social Club Festival that is taking place in Ukraine a renowned Greek artist Fikos Antonios decorated a 16-floor high building in Kyiv with the world’s biggest Byzantine painting.
The name of the artwork is “Earth and Sky”.  “People you see are the personifications of the earth and the sky. The piece became the biggest artwork in history of the Greek art since ancient times. It is definitely the biggest Byzantine mural ever, it is three times higher than the chryselephantine statue of Zeus in Olympia, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world”, says Fikos.
