Seduction, appropriation and endurance

Upon natural or urban landscapes Ι find casual and free poetics. I photograph, I paint or document everything that landscapes offer me as artistic expressions.
The works "Passage I" and "Passage II" depict interventions made by anonymous artists that use the cliff side to print their ideas. This is a road where peasants walk every day to work and with their working tools they carve the cliff (consisted by clay) with curious and varied expressions.
The spot has endured daily interventions through dynamic actions that carry a sense of link between last the creator and the next. Such manifestations can be regarded as morbid, erotic, idyllic or caricaturized. They are anonymous people, which Ι call artists that unaware and continuously, build a patchwork of ideas, energies and complicity. The work presented is a "rescue" made through photography, a media that gives visibility and endurance of such artistic expressions.
