Lot Details

Greek artist Dimitris Yeros is a contemporary painter and photographer. He is a versatile artist, mastering painting and photography with an equal amount of skill, in addition to being a performance artist and poet. Though his paintings and photographs are quite different in style, all of his work is informed by a fascination with Surrealism, and are imbued with a sensual aesthetic. His photographs in particular pay homage to classical Greek nudes. According to Lauren E. Talalay, Associate Curator of the Kelsey Museum at the University of Michigan, Yeros creates "lyrical and surreal paintings and provocative and richly textured photographs. Although he approaches these two media from different vantage points, one can detect a painterly eye in his photographs and a photographer's sensibility in his paintings. The results are beautifully crafted and arresting images that beckon the viewer to pause and contemplate the human condition."

Yeros has exhibited widely, with over 50 individual exhibitions in Greece and abroad, in addition to numerous international group exhibitions, Biennales and Triennales. He has worked with John Stevenson Gallery, and Throckmorton Fine Arts in New York, Holden Luntz gallery in Palm Beach, Vance Martin Fine Arts in San Francisco and Kapopoulos Fine Art in Athens. Yeros' work can be found in private collections, galleries and museums worldwide, including Tate Britain (London), the Getty (L.A.), the International Center of Photography (New York), the National Portrait Gallery (London), the British Museum (London), Museum Bochum (Bochum, Germany), and le Musee des beaux-arts de Montreal (Montreal).
