' The Sin of the Godlies ' - by Yiannis Nikou

Painting - Oil

The “Allegorical Cycle” Mystic texts of the cultures of the East and West, the World of Shadows of the Ancient Greeks, medieval literature (especially that of Dante, Petrarche, Boccacio and others), and the Transcendental realm in general, are a constant inspiration to me, for the realization of pictorially demanding and dynamic paintings. From as early as the Middle Ages, painters such as the great Flemish masters, Bosch, Brueghel and Grünenwald and then later the Romantics and Goya, described paganistic scenes and a primeval world. As with them, I represent the eternal battle between Light and Dark with an art that goes beyond the rational world: an art that is revealing...With the help of Symbolism and allegory, I can detect and depict, the lie, the ugliness, or even the beauty, wherever it exists... Thus, exploring with my paintings these inscrutable worlds, I come to contribute to a universal, visionary Museum of Creation.
