Sculptures

Through a long and prolific career in sculpture, Yannis never stops experimenting with materials and a variety of styles, lines and forms in his works. Every so often, he tries the aims of different artistic trends that are of interest to him, both conceptually and formalistically.

He is intensely influenced by the Cycladic and the Etruscan art, especially in the use of figures as he consistently elongates the human figure and he deforms it through elimination. He draws mythological and historic elements from the Minoan civilization as well as from the whole history and tradition of both Ancient and Modern Greece.
What makes Yannis’s sculpture unique is its immediacy and the way it reflects classical and timeless concepts and values through a simple and viewer-friendly work.

Most of his works are anthropocentric. He uses the human figure alone or along with other elements breaking scale rules and logical truth. Here we should note the presence of surrealistic elements that aim to underline symbolism. Another characteristic element of his art is the movement that comes like a drive from within the sculpture as well as the physical movement that he incorporates in some of his works like in the sculpture The Runners. Many times, he tries to find sculptural solutions for the alternative installation of works in different places like walls, shelves, ceilings and more. In general, there is a flexibility regarding the display and placement of his sculptures.
He could be described as an Optimistic Artist. Through his works, he manages to pose a deeper philosophical question while providing the answer at the same time. He likes to share his personal view and his great artistic and social experience.

 

Surrealism

His main themes are stairs, wheels, windows, wings, faces in repetition, elevation, the mother and the child, runners, the climber, etc.
Concerning technique, having studied the various properties and the applications of materials in depth, he started his career with ceramics and he proceeded to metals, mainly bronze and aluminum. However, he does not ignore materials like glass, Plexiglass, or even cheap materials such as newspaper clippings, soda cans, etc. For modelling his works, he uses easily-molded materials such as wax and clay. He refines his sculptures through casting techniques which give the works their final corrosion and appearance.

Yannis’s sculpture is a way of life. His virtue and spontaneity drive him to come up with new ideas, which makes him very a very productive artist. The concepts and the symbols he deals with stem from life experiences. He is trying to communicate his artistic qualities and values and in a poetic way through three-dimensional art.
