CONTEMPORARY PAINTER AND SCULPTOR
Yiannis Stylianides has an equal passion for sculpting and painting. The whole process of creating a painting or a sculpture takes him out of the daily routine into a beautiful and positive world that he wants to share with everyone through his art. The whole process begins as a visual concept that he works on mentally until he is ready to execute the piece. He finds very fascinating to explore the use of new techniques and materials in the creative process. One of his main goals is to create art using original methods and unique combinations of materials not applied before. One of the methods he created is a groundbreaking process he developed and calls “Constructive Torching”. He creates his own composition of paints and then uses a blow torch to apply the paint on wood. This method creates a fascinating texture and gives the painting a three dimensional quality that allows the viewer to see the painting the same way from all angles. Another series is his signature sculpted wood panels depicting plan views of cities influenced from his architectural background. His fiberglass and wood sculptures revolve around the human body expressing different feelings.
In June 2017, Multi Art Events was commissioned by the Yiannis Stylianides Gallery of Cyprus to organize an exceptional exhibition in the Principality of Monaco.
The exhibition took place at the Carré Doré Gallery, under the patronage of Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.
