This wonderful work projects incredible dynamics, discernible through multiple contrasting couplings in terms of composition, language and morphology. The painting is an impressive work by the famous Greek-American artist John Moraitis, who was awarded the 1st Prize by the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in 1966 and whose works are in international collections and Museums. Just as with most of his work, the coexistence of elements from the West and from that we call the East is quite evident here. Cultural influences and connexions are part of his artistic identity and connect with his idiom in unorthodox and unexpected ways. His recognisable idiosyncratic mixed media technique centres the composition around an imposing figure using the paradoxical as a tool and as a narrative starting point. The playful use of forms and colour mocks the conventional view of reality.
