A painter paints with his mind and not with his hands.
Art washes away the dust of everyday life from the soul.
Painter John Mataragas
Since 1987 I have been professionally involved in painting, collaborating with a well-known gallery in Athens. My paintings are owned by many famous collectors and private individuals in Greece and abroad.
The painting has undergone many changes over the centuries and the only obvious similarity is that all the paintings are covered on their surface with some kind of paint. But even that varies from season to season. Painting describes and evokes every emotion that can be felt!
In the Renaissance period the real depiction of nature is the absolute beauty of painting. In the modern age of avant-garde and the abstract, the lack of aesthetic coherence in painting creates confusion.
The painter with his style and mood unconsciously presents his personality through his paintings.
The canvas depiction of the artist's soul and his technical skills create one masterpiece, which speaks to the senses of people and calms their souls.
