Café Niko

"Niko Pirosmani is what Georgians are proud about, he was self educated artist, who invented new painting technique not only thanks to his great talent but also out of poverty. He is one of the outstanding primitivism painters in the World. But as it usually happenes to greatests - he lived and died in poverty, never recognized by his countrymen while he was alive."

We've been working with the Barnsbury Community Group who are opening a café themed around the works of Niko Pirosmani and have created the graphic identity - Café Niko, at the Hugh Cubbit Centre, Barnsbury.
