Marios Theodosis


Description of thematic-artistic creation:

The sense of joy that one feels when painting is deep and unlimited. The depiction of nature landscapes has always been for me an endless field of inspiration and creation. The choice of my compositions on nature has been made not only on the basis of the particularity of its wild beauty, but mainly in the pursuit to capture as convincingly as possible the texture and diversity of each individual element that makes up the composition. The love for design, the emphasis on detail, the constant study and observation that is enriched with experience, guide my artistic pursuits.In the face of the magic of nature, I believe, there is nothing more satisfying, more irritating, or worthy of capturing one of its colors and shades. In the art of mosaic I was fascinated by the colors, the texture and the inherent beauty of its hard materials, which can be processed creating subtle color combinations.The art of mosaic, or "art of patience" as it is often called, is a time consuming and laborious task as the processing of hard worked or raw natural materials such as glass, ceramic, stone, etc. It requires concentration, perseverance, knowledge, but in the end gives a work of art impressive and "indestructible" in time.Balancing between painting and sculpture, mosaic continues to spread in defiance of modern plastic aesthetics, cheap industrial imitation and mass-produced art.
