Biography from Sotheby's London, New Bond Street:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Nikos Engonopoulos is best known as a pioneer of Surrealism in Greek painting and literature.  He was especially interested in the work of Georgio de Chirico.  In his imagery, the association of reality and myth, classical and modern, embodies the preoccupations of modern Greece through the subconscious.

As Niki Loizidi notes, 'Engonopoulos gave [Greece] one version of surrealism, universal, but at the same time deeply rooted in Greekness' (Niki Loizidi, cited in Kambouridis and Levounis, p. 116).
