Historical Cycle

My love for Greece and for History, in general, gave birth, to a series of paintings with historical themes.
I had already noticed, by studying the old Greek painting, that too many crucial moments in History, were not narrated pictorially yet… That was a strong challenge for me and by possessing the technical means – because, to depict historical representations one needs knowledge and experience – I started a new theme…
Thus, I have depicted epical oil paintings, in terms of dimensions also, inspired by Ancient Greek History, the epos of Alexander the Great, the apogee and Fall of Byzantium and the Hellenic Revolution of 1821 against the Turks.
However, as the great historical moments define the destiny of nations and affect us all, I also painted themes inspired by World History.
By this thematic unit, I believe that the spectator can have a larger perception of my work, as well as of my pictorial identity.
