“I don't know where i'm going but I can't wait to get there...”

Nikoletta Kyprianou is a freelance artist and illustrator from Nicosia, with a BA Degree from Middlesex University. Nikoletta really enjoys creating intricate pen drawings of weird and out of this world characters. She grew up watching old horror and fantasy movies and reading books and comics like Shivers, Goosebumps and Tales from the Crypt, which eventually inspired her art.

Her work is all hand drawn with some final Photoshop touches, depending on the commission. 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 and t-shirt design for many bands.

She was also included in the 2008 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 been a part of various exhibitions such as the New Blood D&AD Awards Exhibition, Ark – Under the Trees, Cyprus Comic Con, which she will also take part in this year and will be featured in future exhibitions such as the 9th Annual Akamantis Exhibition among others. She is also a part of an ongoing project by Write CY, in which a group of young authors and artists combine their forces to create original comic book stories that will be exhibited at Cyprus Comic Con and if all goes well, why not also abroad?
