Dimitris Fortsas


Through the ages painting or sculpture have dealt with the current ideas and reflected a part of the world. A world of ideas, knowledge, aesthetics and emotions. Art is connected to them all. Through art you can comprehend nature, politics, philosophy and love. What i find fascinating in art is to feel her presence in everyday life.

As a sculptor for I’m inspired by the power of nature in the microworld and in the universe. I am also trying to deal with the idea of transformation and continuation in nature. I’ m trying to express these ideas  through my work

in a comprehensive and plain manner.
I wouldn’t like to impose my way of thinking on the viewers but let them
judge my work in their own way.

According to my point of view,
every painting or sculpture is an intervention in everyday life which gives every human being the opportunity to to reflect on life.
