John Bicknell

Meet John Bicknell of Greece..

Oil paint, John Bicknell’s preferred medium, offers freedom in his artistic thinking. Through his extensive studies in Fine Art at University of the Creative Arts Farnham, University of East London, and The Slade School, University College London, John knew he was an artist.

John notes that in his art, the simplest solutions require the greatest research and concentration, and deliver the most profound results.

Grey, John’s favourite colour, allows images to breathe. Widely exhibited across Europe, John lives and works in Athens.

His work during the eighties and nineties centred on an exploration of abstraction and landscape. More recent work has developed a figurative narrative drawn from wide ranging sources and influences including film, theatre, the history of painting, and photo-journalism. He has worked in collaboration with artists, film-makers and actors.

Today, John Bicknell is not only painting but is currently working on his 2nd film from his Athens based studio.

Alex Maganiotis

Meet Alexandros Maganiotis of Athens, Greece.

At age 13, Alexandros Maganiotis covered his room with pictures from music magazines, creating his own collage installations.

Even then, he knew he would be unable to stay away from art. Born and raised in Greece, Alexandros studied architecture in both Athens and London. His background as an architect influences his art practice today, as his favorite medium is ink on paper.

Drawing from a wide array of sources including ancient myths, modern authors, and the vibrant streets of Athens, Alexandros creates surreal works rife with meaning for his discerning audience.

Layered references combined with the precise medium of ink on paper allow him to create detailed compositions that are a feast for both the eyes and the mind.

With his studio just below the ancient Acropolis of Athens, Alexandros can step outside and walk around whenever he is short on inspiration.

That he often finds ideas for artwork from his dreams should come as no surprise given the otherworldly quality found in many of his compositions.

Favorite Artist: Francis Bacon.
Spirit Animal: For him, the horse has freedom and kindness and an amazing elegance.
Secret Superpower: His superpower is his intuition… he know things before they are about to happen, it is a feeling he has that in the end is verified.
