Artist Profile: Nikoletta Kyprianou

Cyprus Comic Con 2016 will be celebrating some amazing local and international talent again this year! The first CCC’16 Featured Artist we would like to introduce to you is Nikoletta Kyprianou, a freelance illustrator from Nicosia.

To see more of Nikoletta’s work, visit her page on Facebook.

Nikoletta graduated with a BA Degree from Middlesex University in London. She enjoys creating intricate pen drawings of weird and out of this world characters. Growing up, Nikoletta was an avid fan of classic horror and fantasy movies and enjoyed reading books and comics such as Shivers, Goosebumps and Tales from the Crypt, which all eventually inspired her art.

For the past 6 years, Nikoletta has been the art director for Power of the Night Festival and most of her current work includes CD covers and booklets, concert and event posters as well as t-shirt designs for local bands.

In 2008, she was included in the D&AD Awards book introducing young fresh talent, for creating a unique look for a series of well-known fantasy novels for the Orion Publishing House. She has participated in various exhibitions such as the New Blood D&AD Awards Exhibition and was also a participating artist in Cyprus Comic Con 2015! Nikoletta will be showcasing her work at more exhibitions in the future, such as the upcoming 9th Annual Akamantis Exhibition, among others.

We are very pleased to have Nikoletta back with us for a second consecutive year! Those of you that didn’t get to see her artwork at last year’s Comic Con, make sure to visit her table and check out her incredibly detailed illustrations!
