In formal design Darko Caramello Nikolic is influenced by Op- and Urban Art and Suprematism. His work is consistently conceptual in nature and abstract in character. The artist is inspired by patterns and structures of any kind, in any place. He is found and touched by them, gladly unexpected and unsought. In content, he likes to orient himself on philosophical questions of the Enlightenment. To pose these questions again, in the form of a painting, is an exciting way for him to approach new solutions and to develop his own aesthetics from them.
