Greek artist Iasonas Kampanis predominantly focuses his art practice around the effect of the abstract visual experience. Mostly, he examines the ambiance of an image operating above any narrative level. In a manner of painting, physically or digitally, he experiments with contemporary ideas, ultimately, with a traditional mindset.
Kampanis’ practice encompasses a variety of influences, from the archaic to the modern period and from organic patterns of folk art to certain visual stimuli of conceptual art.
Above all, Kampanis acknowledges the powerful function of aesthetics as a carrier of notions and as a channel to stimulate human response towards cognition, sensibility and collectivity. Finally, Kampanis’ work ultimately maintains ideas expressive power.
