Waiting for a train or an ATM

'The Queue'

Nikos Kessanlis is one of the protagonists of the 'Mec-art' movement of the contemporary realism of the 60's, well known outside Greece as Nikos. 

The originality of his approach consists in the re-structuring of the bi-dimensional image using industrial photo-mechanic procedures. 

Nikos refuses the passive and static perception of his works. The Phantasmagorias of the identity and the Anamorphoses in three dimensions imply the active participation of the spectator.
