Inspiration From Heraklion and Venecian constructions......
It is a great honor and responsibility to born on this island,Crete.Land of culture,traditions and aromas land of struggles against invaders with positives and negatives,a land of many contrasts.Μy genes definitely inoculated by all but also from images of everyday life and concerns that the natural environment poses every day to me.I concern always for the natural environment and the sustainable built environment between them trying to balance myself.This triptych poses artistic questions to me in which I should and I gave form.I was fortunate enough to meet personalities of enormous dimensions as over time were: Giorgio de Chirico,Giovanni Astengo,Riccardo Licata, .
Carlo Scarpa,Toni Benetton,Ezio Bruno De Felice,Bruno del Monaco,Fabio Pignatelli,Nicola Pagliara,Achille Bonito Oliva,Giuliano Torrebruno,Pablo Picasso,Salvador Dalí,Víctor d'Ors,Antonio Velez Catrain,Javier Carvajal Ferrer,Ilias Lalaounis, Constantinos Apostolou Doxiadis,Costas Andreou,Iannis Xenakis, Aristomenis Provelengios,Georges Candilis,Dimitris Plakas,Kostas Axelos,Georgios Gratseas,Theocharis Provatakis,Melina Mercouri,Jules Dassin,Costa Gavras, Jinnai Hidenobu,all the meaningful personalities as I mentioned before they gave me immense knowledge and the exchange of views with them they helped me to create a serious background knowledge reflection..
Ever since my childhood I've been interested in metals and the elaboration way with the steps where I did to discover and understand the deeper meaning of the metals.The letters and symbols of the greek language and their importance interested me since I was fifteen years old,namely,for over fifty-four years of continuous research and a serious background knowledge reflection. .
In the last 35 years concern me the reaction of the metals in solar rays,on light beams and laser beams with amazing results.In the last 20 years with my children's: Pavlis and Michalis,who are promising artists and keen to make their contribution to Metal Art and Sculpture and also my daughter Olga,we have created a search field with other distinguished friends artists and scientists such as: Giuliano Torrebruno, Αndrea Carnemolla,George Logiadis,Yannis Logiadis, Athena Schina,Theodosis Tasios,Vito Grimaldi,Gianni Falanga,Maria Castronuovo,Lavinia and Costanza Torrebruno..
Τhe causes and effects of environmental degradation and the various derivatives of this crisis worries me intensely and metals offer me the possibility of recording the enormous infinite scream of nature on their surface by techniques used my ancestors the ancient minoans. .
