HIS WORK (AT LEAST AS OF TODAY) CAN BE CLASSIFIED IN THREE MAIN CATEGORIES:

CATEGORY A includes paintings painted with conventional materials on various media (such as canvas, paper for painting, plexiglas, etc). He has used various kinds of painting colors, alone or in combinations, such as all kinds of oils, acrylic, water colors, inks, typography colors, angiography colors, color minerals, sprays, etc. and even he tried some new materials. He has also created certain tools to help him in his painting replacing the classical painter’s brush. Although a painter usually has one technique that characterizes his work, he has applied different techniques in different periods and always tries to discover something new and artistically interesting, giving in his work an uncommon variety of styles. One thing that he likes is to include in many of his paintings, together with the main subject, several other subjects such as strange figures of persons or animals that are sometimes hidden and you have to turn around the painting by 90 or 180 or 270 degrees in order to discover these figures. Therefore for these paintings one has to use his imagination to discover all these hidden items and subjects, and it is left to him to give to the painting the title he prefers (see Group 3 and 6 where you go from the English Home Page).

CATEGORY B includes simple paintings that he painted on paper, with emphasis in color combinations, and then he scanned and entered in the computer and processed by various tools in order to achieve the desired effects. For this purpose he created his own programs and computer tools (since he has considerable experience with computers) and tried to give to this category of paintings, besides the initial artistic bases, also an impressive decorative quality (see Group 4 and 7). In this category belongs also the subcategory B1 (see Group 7A), where the paintings are more concrete and less abstract reminding you of the impressionism, fact however that doesn’t imply that the artist is trying to imitate anybody. 

CATEGORY C contains also paintings that he painted and entered in the computer, combining these with photos he took from his garden and other places and objects, or from his large file of artistic photos he has created during the previous years, thus producing an harmonious “marriage “ of painting and photography (see Group 8, subcategory C1). In certain cases in this category, only artistic photos, one or more, are entered and combined in the computer, where are processed by the computer tools that the artist has created in order to achieve the optimum combination of artistic and decorative qualities. (see Group 5 and 9, subcategory C2).  In this category belongs also the subcategory C3, where the artist gives two or more variations of the same basic theme, with small changes and different combinations of colors in order to satisfy various tastes and preferences (see Group 5Α and 9A).

The fact that categories B and C also offer an impressive decorative quality, made these paintings (that have a lower price compared with those of category A) very well accepted for places like banks, hotels, hospitals, shops, etc. These paintings can be printed in various media and dimensions such as canvas, plexiglas, hard paper, PVC, etc. and the chosen printout is accompanied by the CD on which the painting is stored. Therefore the printout with the CD is unique, and for this reason original, since no other printout of the same painting will be produced by the artist. In cases of plexiglas a special frame may be chosen which includes neon illumination from behind, an effect that makes the painting even more decorative. Due to the high resolution in the computer (files bigger than 40 Megabytes) the dimensions of the printout can be as big as a plotter can produce, (e.g. 6 to 10 feet or more) without affecting its quality.

MIXED MEDIA:  In many of the paintings in B and C categories, the artist continues to work on the painting, after it has been printed (using oil or acrylic etc), combining the work in the computer with the work done by hand afterwards, completing and perfecting the painting. In this case, naturally, there is no CD. However, this does not apply to the cases where, due to the nature of the painting, it is better the print to be given on photographic paper, (for better quality of the print). In this case no additional processing is done by the artist.
