IN THE STUDIO
Nikolaos A. Houtos splits his time between Athens and Rome, but recently during the summers, he has been working in a studio in the village of Artemonas on Sifnos Island in the Cyclades.
Houtos has been making collage and honing his collage techniques for the last 30 years. In his brightly lit studio, he creates large format collages on prepared canvas. The architecture of the studio is typical of the Cyclades and Houtos generally keeps it neat, but visitors will find dozens of magazines and photographs with images from the Byzantine era that he uses to create collages for his “Icons” series.
