    Biography : Since the beginning of his career in the 1990s after he graduated from the Politecnico di Milano, Kostas Neofitidis Artist and an Architect was intrigued by the Italian city, a place he witnessed within an era where expression both culturally and socially were demanded to be explored. During his time in Italy, under the influence of architects and artists, he was fascinated by the post-modern thinking in architecture and by the abstract expressions of Suprematism, an art movement founded by Kazimir Malevich. Joan Miro also influenced his early works, when his style was more experimental, ranging from abstract expressionism, to lyrical abstraction, to suprematism. For the past two decades he has spent most of his time in South East Asia travelling, studying and understanding people and their religious beliefs, absorbing images and cultural references that led to his current signature style of art making which is a reflection of his own personal experiences.

His artwork is a collection of narratives expressed in original watercolour, acrylic and indian ink drawings, as well as limited edition series that are mostly prints, illuminated portraits, woven pieces and ceramic creations. They can be described as a visual celebration of geometric shapes and colors that compliment each other, adjusting uniquely in any environment or space they become part of, blurring the line between art and space, as two contradictory conc
