About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

It was in 1953 that stratos was born in Avignon, in the France chosen by his grandfather, of Greek origin, a tailor by profession. From the age of 14 he rubs shoulders with the artistic world in an architecture firm, a discipline in which he is trained. He will then become aware of the aesthetics of the beauty of the line and thus will develop in him this creative fiber which will never leave him again. This is how the creator of form will be born, the assembler of characters springing from his brush, with this dazzling red, this luminous yellow, this deep blue and these blacks which will encircle all his silhouettes - mother child, couples, musicians... all sources of life, of this life so precious to share, altruistic message from the artist who will give everything. The route will lead to the sculptures, which will succeed the paintings and come to stand in its universe, monumental and smooth, metallic and caressing, tangled silhouettes which brush against each other, touch each other, cello musicians that we listen to we hear and these nested couples, entwined with their heads intimately linked which make us think of dreaming, we listen to their silence. It's Stratos who flies away, let's hold his hand very tightly, let's fly away with him in this magical world of childhood, let's take advantage of this moment given by the artist to immerse ourselves for a moment in this world of serene tranquility in the dreamlike universe of this childhood that we will have to leave one day. May we keep it, make room for it in our hearts, that's the miracle of Stratos, with its multicolored and flamboyant starry sky universe with all its characters holding out their hands to us and then these metallic shadows rising towards the clouds and delicately envelop us... all of this gives off a jubilant perfume that will make us happy, really happy.

French artists

Stratos was born in 1953 in Avignon, France, son of Greek immigrants. His father was a tailor. At the age of 14 he started working in an architecture office and learn the aesthetics of this art. His creativity is infomed by this period in his life. His painting, his characters and his energetic colors have their origins in these early years: his yellows and reds and deep blue, his mothers, childredn, couples, musicians... They are all sources of life that he wants to share and spread the message of this generous artist. Stratos takes us into the magic world of childhood, colorful and serene, a universe with starry, flamboyant skies, full of characters that seem to reach out to us, metallic shadows that rise to the clouds in a kind of perfume that promises to make us happy.
