Newspaper Sculptures by Nick Georgiou

These cool paper sculptures are by Queens, NY based artist Nick Georgiou. Georgiou’s work is inspired by “the death of the printed word/world, economic collapse, political and environmental uncertainty.

Georgiou states: “Books and newspapers are becoming artifacts of the 21st century. Whatever we used to read off paper, we’re now reading off digital screens. Our way of interacting with text is changing. My work is not only about the decline of the printed word in today’s society but its rebirth as art.”

Georgiou recently opened a new gallery/studio space in downtown Tucson. He is also completing a documentary about the decline of the printed word, and is working on a series of sculptures for a solo exhibition in Cyprus and Greece.
