About The Artwork

My lovable Grandma was the reason for creating this painting. I captured this wonderful moment with my camera while she was breaking almonds in her small home in the village. With this art, I want to convey a sense of sweet nostalgia and help those viewing it remind them of their happiness and how important and valuable those special moments are in our lives. I'm using colored pencils because they allow precision, control of detail, and depth. I wanted to control my line weight and easily emphasize attributes and shadows. Having control over the line weight is a great way to separate objects from one another and can help emphasize shadows. I'm transferring the simplicity and sensitivity of the moment by creating lighting and soft shadings in contrast to very dark and thicker lines. I'm conveying the 3D form and focusing on the grandma figure. The grandmother's figure awakens these carefree and beautiful moments in the village and connects us to the past. Moments when my own and older generations lived made our lives more beautiful and memorable. I convey these messages to the younger generations through this art, thus keeping our roots alive. I want to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully and discover beauty in simple moments and the strength of emotions they obtain through this art. We don't just understand; we feel; we experience through art. Art moves us in ways that can bypass the walls we build to keep out the truth.

Digital Artist and Surface Pattern Designer ARTIST STATEMENT My art is a form of expression and an extension of my personality. My creative mind never stops, and everything around me is an inspiration for my work, even the most minor and insignificant things in life. I started doing art at a very young age. For me, art becomes a source of search, processing, and ultimately peace with various experiences. Sometimes I draw figures, faces, and things in which I find something profound. I like to capture a moment and put it in a work of art. What I like most about the design are the emotions. I love seeing something shaking in someone's eyes and face, something just below the surface, and I can capture it with my drawing. I want to inspire people with works of art that focus on the resilience, strength, and connection of the human spirit and emotions. After graduating from University, I worked in many Local Design Offices. At the end of 1999, I started focusing on web design. I spent the last 21 years as a web designer and developer at Cyprus's largest Telecommunication Authority Company. Although family and work commitments prevailed, I continued my passion for art in my spare time. I am incredibly compassionate, and in many ways, I put myself wholeheartedly into every work of art. I never focus on specific art styles and themes, as I do not want to be framed in a particular technique and be more faithful to my emotions and imagination. Different media always allow me to express other ideas, and during the research, new areas of interest emerge and lead to my subsequent work. Sometimes I even use themes to satisfy my obsession with colors and imagination. In a way, I communicate with this elusive sense of absolute joy in my art, and every time I feel happy in my life, I create art with colors full of fantastic images and objects. I always find beauty in bad things and try to transfer them to powerful and unique works of art. My work has been constantly rooted in the many personal emotions, moments, and things I have drawn from life for the past ten years. Evolution is my primary goal. It's something I demand of myself and my job. In recent years my works have been created spontaneously. At first, I did not realize it, but in the process, looking at them as a whole, I can say that, indeed, there is an explosion of imagination. I avoid pre-defining the true meaning of the messages I send through my work and letting the viewer travel through my art.
