5 Nikos Gyftakis

Using oil pastels on canvas, Greek artist Nikos Gyfaktis has created a unique series of colorful, swirling self-portraits.

Aside from his signature swirly style, Gyfakis curates art exhibitions, teaches Painting and Costume/Fashion Design in public and private institutions, and has created stage-settings and paintings for several movies and theatrical shows.

Looking sad and distraught is not a new fad — people have been sad on the internet for years — it’s just become increasingly apparent with the advent of popular micro-blogging sites like Tumblr. These are the places where lonely teenagers (and people in their 20s) turn to document their lives in online journals, then share it with the millions of users around the world. Whether people are desperately alone in the harsh climates of Siberia, sharing a fleeting moment of self doubt in the crowded, insaneness of Manhattan, or staring out their window into the endless suburbs of Chicago; looking sad has always had an artistic quality.
