Thomas Tournavitis’ painting exhibition
The art historian Annita Patsouraki mentions: “Thomas Tournavitis’ works are portraits of people bathed in the sunlight and the sense of motion which are infinitely present. The idea of continual change, law of the universe, along with the unity of contradictions in space, reveal a personal colour palette exposed at the Greek sunlight. The work of Thomas Tournavitis is directed by theoretical and technical education inspired by ideals and diachronical moral values.
He is following the steps and signs of faith, in what he taught, he summarises the compositions with honoured facts and faces, social incidents, events and characters in an ecumenical atmosphere . The descriptive austerity of his work revives images of tradition and boldly reflects a new Hellenistic writing… With reflection, self-knowledge and intense internal search, the painter guides his childhood memory-experiences for the regeneration and creation of a new school.”
Thomas Tournavitis was born in 1981 in Athens, Greece. He studied at the atelier of sculptor Nikos Stefos (1997-1999). He graduated in 2005 from the University of Fine Arts in Derby (UK) with a BA in Fine Arts (P) and continued his postgraduate studies in Berlin, Germany (2006-2007). He worked as a former Lecturer at the Department of Photography D. IEK Volos and as an Art teacher in public and private Primary Schools in the city of Volos, Greece (2008-2010).
Since 2008 has enjoyed a successful artistic career in which he been the subject of 30 international solo exhibitions. He has featured in over 100 group shows and major public art projects worldwide. His works adorn private and public collections in New York, Miami, Paris, Montpellier, Athens, Zagreb, Bratislava, Nicosia, Sarajevo and more. Until now, he lives and works in his Atelier in Piraeus, Greece.
