PAINTERAlexis Vlachos


The Greek Artist Painter Alexis Vlachos was born in 1972 in Larissa. He attended the first painting lessons in the workshop of Nikos Samaras. In 1992 he was admitted with a Scholarship to the Accademia di Belle Arti di Lecce, in Italy, as well as, Schools of Fine Arts in both Athens and Thessaloniki in Greece.

He chose and studied at the School of Fine Arts of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in the period between 1992-1998 with professor Vangelis Dimitreas, while with a Scholarship in 1996 he continued his studies at the Facultat de Belles Arts, Universitat de Barcelona with Professor J. Chancho Cabre.
He has actively participated in numerous Team and Solo Exhibitions in Greece and abroad, presenting various collections of his works.

As an Artistic Identity, Alexis Vlachos' creations deal mainly with the female body, as a carrier, transmitter and receiver of emotions, which absorbs and redistributes the intensity and energy of creation.

Through painting and engraving technique on metal, emotions of pain, sorrow, passion and love are captured and manifested through dynamic body poses, full of tension, with axes that intersect the naked bodies at a meeting point and conflict in a constant search with a transcendence of structures.
His imaginary is often dark, juxtaposing harsh lines with the sinuous forms of the body. He employs splashes of colors contingent with the flesh and blood of the body, using rich reds in tandem with the warm tones.

It often undermines stereotypical religious Iconography, depicting crosses as obstacles, religious figures as guardians while paying homage to the woman as a concept and as an existence of admiration and awe and especially in front of the miracle that has the image of a woman’s naked body and its offerings as a structure of power, beauty and harmony. In this anonymous and idiosyncratic way, compositions with other needs of rhythm, postures, form, nature and space are rendered.Θέατρο-Vault-640x640.jpg
