“The Green Room 1+2” seem to blur our vision, while in fact their latent actuality makes us put together a clear image in our own mind. We instinctively know that the indecipherable packet of cigarettes on the side table is indeed a Marlboro, and we feel estranged and yet familiar. 
His “Motel Room” images mark spaces that are always the same. The only thing individual in a motel room is the individual, everything else is ideal, formal, economical. 
By finding repetition in those spaces and sending out mixed messages and contradictory cues, the artist reveals the narratives of the stories these non-places produce. — NIKOLAS VENTOURAKIS

Nikolas Ventourakis is a visual artist living and working between Athens, Greece and London, UK. His photographic practice fuses fine art and documentation, and relies on the manifested misconceptions and assumptions, created by the interaction between the viewer and the work. He completed an MA in Photography with Merit at Central Saint Martins School of Arts (2013) and is the recipient of the Deutsche Bank Award in Photography (2013). As one of the top graduating artists in the UK he was selected for Future Map (2013), Catlin Guide (2014) and Fresh Faced Wild Eyed (2014) in the Photographers Gallery.
