DIMITRIS MICHLIS

Creativity is a personal function. I work day-to-day without waiting for inspiration before I start. Working to open the creative space of my character, which I believe is within every human being. When this space is opened, then a work of art is born or begins to be born. So, his repressed energy is released and my morale strengthens. My themes are anything I like to see. By painting it I try to feel it. When what I see and what I feel is logically and visually imprinted on the surface, then I have in front of me a work I like to see.
