About the artwork: Konstantinos Michalos belongs to a new artist generation, where personal expression prevails over a stylistic proposition, and thus his artwork is more empirical than depicting a certain technique. He expresses through his paintings his psychological drives as well as his philosophical, spiritual and social concepts.
The artwork The Pregnancy: A protection from the environment is given to us only once, at the beginning. But even there, we are affected. Mother’s laughter, tears, her voice in rage, and her song in happiness – we knew her before we tasted oxygen in our lungs. The yesterday of the womb resonates with today’s desire for a calm place. Roll yourself into a blanket, hold and embrace yourself. We learn the embryo posture in yoga, we practice self soothing mechanisms. They have an effect indeed. But in its quality, holding yourself is worlds apart from being held by another.
