Brief description of practice
The artistic practice of Ntolas can be defined as multidisciplinary and pluralistic, in the sense that it doesn’t limit itself to one medium, direction or approach, but embraces the freedom to traverse a multitude of creative paths following its curiosity and intuition. The common thread of this free-roaming practice is a phenomenological and experimental approach combined with research into diverse fields ranging from the study of light, optics and perception, to philosophy, architecture, history of religion and metaphysics. Past outcomes have manifested as works in public space, drawings, sculptures, light installations, and architectural models. Future ones may or may not include the above, plus writing, video works and indie video games.
