Stelios Zacharoudis

 

Stelios Zacharoudis was born in Thessaloniki. He studied design, graphic arts and interior-exterior design. From 1978 to 1983 he studied painting next to the professor and painter EVA BATSLACOVA in the Academy of Fine Arts of Prague, in Czechoslovakia. At the same time, he attended set and costume designing classes at the Department of Set Designing of the same Academy. While living in Munich, Western Germany and later in New York, working closely with the painter A. ZARCOSIAN, he learned and studied the new trends in painting, which affected his own evolution.

In 1983-1984 he met the world-famous gallery owner Alexandros Iolas and, with his encouragement, he started experimenting with colors and aphaeretic depiction. Past experiences, images and deep feelings started searching for a way out. The classic iconic reality is absent in terms of shape and form.

He uses both oil colors and mixed techniques and he focuses in real and imaginary subjects, tending towards surrealism and psychography. During this phase his paintings show well-shaped figures, intense distortion, introverted colors and continuous lines.

He has exhibited his works in 15 personal and 16 collective exhibitions in Greece and abroad.
