Horizon #8 is an artwork from the series HORIZONS. Inspired by the artist's daily life and his visual influences, like the beauty of natural deserts, these works set questions about Deserted places and Fields and how those elements have an impact in the climatic cycle. In addition, he truly believes that geological formations inevitably reflected on our personalities. Last, more and more places on earth are turning deserted with climate change being a fact. Are humans psychologically or physically ready to deal with them?

 

Three other works from this series belong to the Christofis Collection.

  • Panagiotis Stavrou was born in Limassol of Cyprus in 1995. After being actively involved in different artistic activities during the school years and winning a great number of student's awards and prizes, he decided to continue with art studies. In 2015, he entered the Athens School of Fine Arts where he graduated in 2020, with honors. During his studies, he took part in various exhibitions mostly in Greece and Cyprus. In 2020, he entered Christofis Collection and Vogiatzoglou Collection. From then he continues being an active artist that lives and works both Limassol and Athens.

    The driving force in Panagiotis's creativity is the power of simplicity. His challenge is to bring to the viewer's attention the fact that whole stories can arise out of the most common of things, constantly present around us. His work is based on the importance of optical phenomena that we overlook, those elements such as Horizons, Deserts, Borders or even Windows. Each time, they lead to a brand new creative path, ready to become embodiments of novel imagination.

    The biggest part of this work explores those elements mainly on Landscapes, Forms and Fields with various practices and materials.
