In the paintings of his older work, he belongs to the abstract expressionism, he develops a central core of color that elsewhere erupts towards the edges and elsewhere spreads calmly over the entire surface of the painting. In his new work, which is anthropocentric, figures of people are formed which are intertwined with the pandemonium of the colors of the whole surface.

Heinz Ohff

Professor of Art History in Munich (1981)

 

In his long artistic career, Stelios Zacharoudis consistently served the expressionist ideals, with a strong tendency towards anthropocentrism and sensual self-expression. There were darker times, when the portraits were distinguished by intense emotional agony, but always with elements of Phobism, intense bursts of color in the need to renew the impulse and, why not, a playful and youthful mood. So, today we come to see the artist reinvent the portrait and the nude model, with additional pop art brightness, with the transparency of a watery mood, completing the pattern with small doses of displacement and a renewed devotion to the form. The influences of the great teachers of the past are strong, but filtered by the personal look of Zacharoudis who remains, in spite of the times, optimistic and clear, inviting us to share some of his own light.

Stelios Zacharoudis was born in Thessaloniki. He studied design, graphic arts and interior-exterior design. From 1978 to 1983 he studied painting next to the professor and painter EVA BATSLACOVA in the Academy of Fine Arts of Prague, in Czechoslovakia. At the same time, he attended set and costume designing classes at the Department of Set Designing of the same Academy. While living in Munich, Western Germany and later in New York, working closely with the painter A. ZARCOSIAN, he learned and studied the new trends in painting, which affected his own evolution.

In 1983-1984 he met the world-famous gallery owner Alexandros IOLAS and, with his encouragement, he started experimenting with colors and aphaeretic depiction. Past experiences, images and deep feelings started searching for a way out. The classic iconic reality is absent in terms of shape and form.

He uses both oil colors and mixed techniques and he focuses in real and imaginary subjects, tending towards surrealism and psychography. During this phase his paintings show well-shaped figures, intense distortion, introverted colors and continuous lines.
