Nassos Daphnis was a Greek-born American abstract painter and sculptor. His work is often associated with hard-edge painting: an art movement with emphasis on calculated precision in execution, relying mainly on flat surface planes. Among this movement were important artists like Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, and Alexander Liberman. His legacy of works deals with color and geometric abstraction which foresaw the advent of the digital age.
Daphnis, who passed away in 2010.Richard Taittinger Gallery is hosting a compelling solo show of his works in its New York’s Lower East Side gallery.
