Dio Horia Shop is thrilled to announce the release of Elias Kafouros, What you most want to see to want most you what?, 2022, limited edition print.
Elias Kafouros (b. 1978, Athens) lives and works in Athens. He received a BFA in Painting from the Athens School of Fine Arts in 2004. Drawing from such disparate and wide-ranging points of reference as film, online culture, Renaissance painting, or Buddhist meditation mandalas, Kafouros weaves dizzyingly complex and prodigiously oversaturated compositions that are unmistakably idiosyncratic and instantly recognizable. His work is best seen as instances of experiential art. While their medium may present at first glance as traditional paint on flat surface, the true impact of these works reveals itself within the cognitive space of their perceiver, the utterly hypnotizing effect of the deliberate density of their virtuosic composition unfolding gradually as a deeply personal processual revelation, rather than in simple terms of seeing and acknowledging a singular image.
2 SHOP (aka Dio Horia shop), is based in Nea Filothei Greece and online, and delivers to art aficionados internationally.
