Dimitri likissas

(Belgium 1969 -)


Biography

Dimitri Likissas (1969) was born and raised in Belgium and has Greek roots. Around his early 20’s he moved to the Caribbean where his career evolved from being a graphic designer to a corporate director of a media publishing company. From that point forward he has turned into a full time artist painter and his creations have discovered their way into numerous private collections mostly in Europe and America. His colored dots arrangements, transform imagery into abstract/geometric forms. He explores the unlimited potential of chromatic and tonal scale, visual planes and volume with a two-dimensional framework. Viewing his dynamic works of art is an exciting optical experience. He is influenced by his pop art heroes Keith Haring (which he has personally met as a teen), Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. For him, the pattern of dots serve as references to living organisms, atoms, i.e. the idea that matter is made up of discrete units. These patterned dots cohabitate in harmony. For him dots (circles) keep on moving and rolling, where he has developed his own optical language and inimitable style. With utmost proficiency he invites us to view the world as magical, fluid, and invigorating panorama.
