The latest exhibition by Nikos Soulakis is a visual play of colours, which inspire emotion and simplicity, praising youth, friendship and passion
Greek Australian artist Nikos Soulakis will present his latest exhibition Mythoplasies as part of this year's Antipodes Festival.
An established painter, Soulakis' paintings are influenced by Greek life, ancient Greek civilisation, Byzantine spirituality, the contemporary Greek and Australian landscape and the culture and experiences of the Greek Australian community and the Australian aborigines.
The exhibition Mythoplasies is inspired by Greek mythology, the Greek diachronic traditions and landscape. Consisting of 53 smaller sized paintings, the landscape is inspired by birds, ships, windmills, human hair and bodies - even dismembered bodies. Persons, scenes and images, from myth and reality, legends and fairy tales meet, merging the past with the present in the paintings.
Soulakis has exhibited work in group and personal exhibitions, deigned covers of periodicals, books and CDs and also sets for local theatre productions.
Mythoplasies, will open on Thursday 3 May at the Steps Gallery, 62 Lygon Street, Carlton South and will run till 16 May. For more information you can contact the artist on firstname.lastname@example.org
