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 Wave” depicts the wild movement of water and elements be speaks unrest. But surprisingly, the unrestrained upheavals of the sea do not create the sense of threat. The sprinkles of purple and red dominating the centre of the painting take into the infinite, away from the solid gray, away from danger. The inner aspects of a particular life – secret thoughts, unspoken desires – surface and break free. The static of the solipsistic self is breached and the self allows itself to be affected for the first time.
