Born in Canada to Greek immigrants, Niko Papadatos has lived a life full of passion and dreams. One of his many loves is the ocean and all her hidden beauty. Alive with poetic mystery, the ocean beckons Niko's to gently capture those special moments that are revealed to us for a brief moment. His desire to live by the ocean has moved him to his Panamanian beach front studio where his inspiration gently calls him daily as the waves remind him that every dream in life is attainable. A successful entrepreneur, Niko Papadatos has always had the desire to capture life on canvas. After running a thriving cosmetic empire for several years, and maintaining a successful boutique salon for his exclusive clientele, Niko decided to slow down his fast pace life and share the special moments with his family. Niko's mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s several years ago. It was a difficult time learning and dealing with the challenges that are accompanied with this terrible illness. At 50 years of age Niko packed up his mother, his life long partner Mario and his (hairless dog) Calvo and headed to Panama to live and celebrate life. Be it the warm ocean breezes or the sound of the waves, Niko's life has changed dramatically. His mother, rather than struggling daily with simple tasks, showed signs of recovery while his artistic desires exploded on canvas. For several years now Niko Papadatos has been sharing with the world the beauty of life captured on his canvas. With every heart felt stroke of his brush or pallet knife you can feel the intensity of colour exploding on the canvas. At times you feel like you could simply walk right into his art. Listen closely and you too may hear the sound of his waves. Niko's self taught technique and unique approach to painting has brought him international recognition.
