Nicholas Kontaxis Uses Art to Communicate and His Solo Exhibit Is a Must-See

“Flipping Out” alum Jenni Pulos is shining the spotlight on her nephew Nicholas Kontaxis, an incredible artist close to her heart. The 26-year-old is a self-taught abstract expressionist painter who Jenni says “was diagnosed with a brain tumor at a young age.” She says he’s suffered “75,000 seizures in his life,” which left him unable to speak, so he turned to art as a way to communicate.
