Nikos worked at Cityscape Digital as their lead 3D Artist for several years, going on to become the CGI Director. Eventually Nikos returned to his homeland of Greece, but maintained the strong relationship that he’d developed with Cityscape over the years. Due to their close partnership, they were able to develop a new concept together; creativelighting.co, a vision for CG driven by the philosophies of cinematic lighting. He recently launched the Creative Lighting Club, an exclusive community where CG artists can learn, be inspired, and discover their artistic power. Nikos shares his Creative Lighting philosophy all over the world, delivering workshops and helping artists to take their work a step further. He believes that creative inspiration can be found everywhere, and is particularly passionate about the ethereal nature of the morning light and magic hour.
Ten years ago, Damian Fennell put his fine art and sculpture career on hold to join Cityscape Digital, a leading architectural visualisation house. He is now Cityscape’s Creative Director, shaping the look of the work and the creative philosophy of the studio since 2009. He and Nikos worked closely together during Nikos’ five years at Cityscape, and Creative Lighting was born out of their partnership. Damian is passionate about image-craft, design, and the play of light and dark. He completed his home studio last year, and is gradually getting back into his first loves of sculpture and painting.
