TASOS CHONIAS

Tasos Chonias was born in 1974 in Athens.

He started painting at a very young age. At the age of 16 he did wall paintings at commercial and non-commercial spaces and later turned to scenography, movie-poster design and conservation of old wall paintings. Since 2005, he has been focusing exclusively on oil paintings with themes evolving from a series of interiors to landscapes and his most recent series of cars painted against urban backgrounds.

 

The painted metal sculpture "Light in the heart" leads to the illusion of an interior space that belongs to third dimension of a different kind: the blinding light invades diagonally from the open window, explores the texture of the material, and converses with shades on a poetic quest where the process of painting is starring.


His works can be found in many collections in Greece and abroad.
