Inspiration
 

When the lockdown started in March, I was in my studio on Texel. Everything suddenly came to a standstill, an enormous calm ensued.

When I walked to te sea and  the dunes every day, I rarely saw people. Even on the beach there were no people, I was completely taken over by nature.

 

It seemed as if I had ended up in a virtual reality game, where all people had suddenly disappeared. There was a serene peace which was very beautiful and on the other hand felt very unreal because there were no people. Even the sea was calm and there was no wind.

 

This inspired me to paint art work  'Calm down.'

 

I wish everyone a nice summer & good health!

 

Kind regards,

Gelos Michailidis

"I am self thaught. To get inspiration I travel to the Dutch coast or to the wadden Island Texel to observe the light, the space and the appearance of shadows.

The sparkles in the sea, the dunes and the skies are an unrelenting stream of inspiration and ideas that I process on panels in oils."
