I have read that your work is influenced by Mark Rothko. However, in my opinion, I would look probably at De Stijl and Mondrian. Where do you place yourself on this spectrum?
You are right, no matter how similar they look, the research is different. These artists showed the way to the future generations. I think the first years of abstraction in my work were influenced by Malevich and Rothko but later the use of the line became more similar to De Stijl. However, the abstraction is evolving now and it is a new language of communication.
What do you find special in the field of colour and geometrical compositions?
The colour is meaningful, has power, emotion, ideology and philosophy and the same applies to the form.
Contemporary art is easy and anyone can do it. Such a statement has appeared a few times during my conversations with artists and sometimes I see such comments on a popular website. How would you comment on that?
When you try to paint or copy something can be easy or difficult, but to create a personal path requires a couple of things, not only to simply paint a surface. After all, everything is created in a painting by using three colours.
I will now ask the professor Ioannis Lassithiotakis. Why is modern art often difficult to perceive or understand?
A small child perceives the world by touching, smelling and lastly by the logic.
So, if you do not approach and try to feel the different things, will not be understood.
The same happens with contemporary art, you must approach it without any preconception, in order to understand it.
