Artist Statement

Yianni frequently applies paint in thick layers and then makes cuts into it to produce paradoxical images in an existential style, whether they depict animals or abstracts. One of his favorite methods is taking his aluminum skimmer and pulling translucent color across the surface, varying the pressure slightly as he moves along the panel. His techniques are constantly evolving and changing, as are the world and its inhabitants.

Artist Bio

Unlike many other artists self-taught Greek artist Yiannis Mellios started working out of his living room. His inspiration has been the Mediterranean landscape of his homeland that is characterized by tones of lush earth colors and brilliant blues. As a paragliding pilot, he has captured images of flying over Greeceā€™s dry mountains, hills and unforgettable stretches of beach coasts in the summer. In addition, the earth and its living creatures are a favorite subject.
