He participated twice at the Documenta in Kasel, once at the Venice Biennale and in the Paris Biennale in 1985 where he was honored with the first prize.
The successful presentation of the work of sculptor Nikos Tolis at the 2nd Art Thessaloniki Fair (2017) with four sculptures in the VIP program, was the reason for the selection by the hotel company IKOS resorts of two of his works of big dimensions made of reinforced concrete with special and innovative techniques, for the new hotel complex in Corfu, Ikos Dassia.
The placement of the sculptures was accomplished on the 30th of April 2018.
