This short artwork- series is inspired by an early childhood story in which the moon is visiting “our house” every night in order to drink milk and get some rest till the morning comes. This story’s been crucial for Nikoletta ’s work as it represents her belief that seeking into our early memories can bring up very unique and original ideas. That’s why she chose to bring to life such incidents and stories by protecting them and carrying them around, as a significant part of her inner self.

Nikoletta was born in Athens, Greece in 1996. She studied Painting at the 1st Painting Studio of the Athens School of Fine Arts (2014-2021). She also completed a student exchange program in the Royal Academy of Arts - The Hague (2018).
During her studies, she took part in various exhibitions around Greece. In 2019 she was awarded by the Greek department of the “Rosa Luxemburg” foundation.
Nikoletta Papakonstantinou’s artistic practice is strongly related to capturing the essence of early childhood memories and the exceptional way they deconstruct, shortly before they fade out.
