Iannis Ganas / Antitimo

The work of Iannis Ganas is characterized by innovative techniques. The artist develops these techniques, while inventing new ones to serve the making of each of the works he intends to realize. The idea of of a bigger scale painting that is made in an almost typographic way and at the same time in a handmade one, creates a sentiment of precision, bleaches out gesture as an aesthetic event and leaves us with a work of great emotional charge. In this body of work, beyond the large landscape painting, there are also the streets where the artist has lived till now. Here, Iannis Ganas returns to sculpture, this time again however the sculptural work becomes the result of a typographic process that reminds us of his painting techniques.
In this show, it becomes evident in the most confident way that something we can discover on the street, can prove to be of major significance.
