Expressing the human form

Morfi Gallery in Limassol will welcome the artwork of Dimitis Mytaras onto its walls as of tomorrow at 8pm.

Greek artist Mytaras is considered to be one of the most important Greek painters of the twentieth century.

His work is mainly inspired by the human figure, and a combination of naturalism and expressionism. Through his career he has always painted the human form to reflect the place and time he was creating. He has always painted in events of the time. This is why from the 1960s onward, his technique and creations were rooted in naturalism, while from 1975 he took a much more expressionistic approach to his brushstrokes, and expressed more and more of himself in his work.

Mytaras, from Halkida, studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts. He then went on to study stage design at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. From 1964 until 1972, he directed the Interior Decoration Workshop of the Athens Technological Institute, and since 1975 he has been teaching at the Painting Workshop of the Athens School of Fine Arts.

Mytaras has participated in more than 30 international group shows.
