“Everything changes and that’s a good thing! Embracing the power of change in our lives is transformative for ourselves and our communities future”. – Yiannis Kaminis
The international artist born in Greece is inspired by people, ideas, and phenomena as they are evident in the sphere of conscious and unconscious life. He chooses colors to represent energy dynamics and the paintings of acrylic on canvas emerge as a flow of energy. Usually, each painting has a multifaceted meaning unveiling archetypical signs and symbols allowing the imagery to be positioned and hanged from different sides. Each painting is characterized by free-flowing movement and multilevel 3D layers. The artist is in an altered state of consciousness during the process of painting through specialized meditation techniques and selects music to accompany the energy representation of themes.
The art of Yiannis Kaminis is exhibited in galleries, art fairs, shows, exhibitions and events in New York – USA, Cusco – Peru, Seoul – S.
