Spyros Droussiotis (Photographer) and Hermes Pittakos (Makeup/Art Director)
The two artists are working on an ongoing collaboration project that aims to recreate and re-imagine a series of Renaissance inspired portraits.
The series depicts characters that appear to be eerie, decaying figures that emerge from the darkness of pictorial space into the light with dramatic realism but with a sense of beauty and elegance.
In these photographic paintings you witness the style and aesthetic of these two artist’s collaboration. Droussiotis’ elegant sculptural composition of the models and his use of dramatic lighting and shadows, along with Pittakos’ deconstruction of the body using mixed media, painting techniques and textures, create works where both artists compliment each other.
