In recent years, the artistic research of Nikos Papadimitriou pursues the theme of human competitive nature. The driving force of his artistic expression is the human need for prevalence and domination, the agony to impose oneself upon fellow men, as an individual or as a group, in different facets or forms.
Papadimitriou implements a variety of materials and techniques to create drawings, paintings, sculptures or installations.
