Mostly Abstract

Constantin Alexiades is a Greek architect and painter.

"I studied architecture and "arts plastiques" at E.N.S.B.A. (Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts) in Paris. I have been painting and drawing since childhood.

"Some years ago I encountered digital painting. I love its multilevel features, the unlimited number of options, the freedom of color or layer choices. I paint mostly abstract works.

"In most of my attempts I can't really predict the final result of painting. I start to paint, based on an initial idea.

"In my landscapes and seascapes (figurative paintings) the procedure of the creation has the same technique characteristics. I work mainly through my imagination or memory of the splendid landscapes of my beloved country, using a variety of digital painting software packages. My paintings can be found in numerous private collections around the world.

"I live in Greece."

Processed Photographs

"These are all simple photographs. Light has been captured by a camera and the resulting latent image has been processed and printed. The processing is a little different, but it?s only a question of degree. The actual processes or tools used are very common and likely to have been used on every published photograph you have ever seen.

The tools are just used over and over again until the original image is almost totally destroyed. At that point, so much of the original subject of the photograph has been removed that it is only just recognisable. What we ?see? in these images is very much a figment of our own imagination. They have been made to remind us all that, in a photograph, we can only see what we already know."

The Enigma of Color and Shape

Mostafa Afiri was born in 1957 in Casablanca, Morocco.

He is an artist-painter and stage-designer and was involved in several national and international exhibitions and films. From his childhood he showed a penchant for drawing and painting. He attended the school of fine arts where he completed his vocation in art in all its forms: music, painting, photography and cinema, enriching the Moroccan visual and pictorial environment.

Mostafa Afiri has charted his own path separate from all modernist trends of his generation; he keeps strictly to the principle of the genesis of the visible; he shows in his creations the enigma of color and shape.
