COSTAS EVANGELATOS / Chemins enchevêtrés Peintures / Dessins / Poèmes

Le vernissage sera suivi d'un cocktail.

Les chemins enchevêtrés poétiques et artistiques (en peinture et poésie) de Costas EVANGELATOS à Paris.
L’inauguration des peintures,  poèmes et  dessins de Costas EVANGELATOS, aura lieu à Paris sous forme d’une exposition personnell au CENTRE DE SEVRES. Il s’agit de la septième exposition personnelle d’ EVANGELATOS à Paris et la huitième en France, (la première exposition très réussie, intitulée : « Conceptualisations » a eu lieu aux Fontaines de Chantilly en 1988). A l’exposition actuelle intitulée : « CHEMINS ENCHEVETRES », les compositions (peintures) exposées s’inscrivent visuellement dans un monde de symboles, de formes et de notions ou en émergent. L’exposition est exactement intitulée comme le recueil de morceaux choisis, d’œuvres littéraires ou musicales récemment publiés en français. En même temps l’édition de ce florilège de poèmes à l’écriture représentative et de dessins de l’artiste sera présentée afin que les amateurs d’art puissent se faire une image indicative mais globale des recherches novatrices de l’artiste. L’exposition sera ouverte jusqu’au  16 juin 2012 et l’entrée gratuite pour les amateurs d’art, de 12h jusqu’au 21h. (Face au Bon Marché, Métro : Sèvres-Babylone).


L'historienne d'art Maray GEORGOUSI lui consacre un article :

L’important créateur visuel, écrivain, artiste en représentation (performeur), historien de l’art Costas EVANGELATOS a étudié le droit à l’université d’Athènes ainsi que la peinture et l’histoire d’esthétique de l’Art Contemporain à Manhattan sous la direction des enseignants Allen DAVID et Pearl EHRLICH. De 1986 au 1993, il a été directeur artistique de la galerie DADA à Athènes. Il a en outre créé l’art studio EST en 1990 à Athènes. Ensuite, en parallèle avec la peinture il a également été actif au niveau international dans d’autres domaines artistiques : l’écriture, la poésie, l’art en mouvement  (la performance), l’art corporel, le happening, le mail art. Il a  exposé  à Athènes, Thessalonique,  Rochester N.Y, New York City, Avignon, Chantilly, Paris, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Nicosie, etc., et est membre d’organisations scientifiques, éducatives et artistiques ; depuis 1991, il est membre de la Chambre des Beaux-Arts de Grèce.
Les compositions de EVANGELATOS ne sont aucunement statiques, mais sont caractérisées au contraire par un dynamisme et un mouvement, réalisés grâce aux compétences  conceptrices et  techniques de l'artiste. En outre, inspirés par un intense lyrisme de la forme, un embellissement poétique de la réalité, ses paysages se référent donc tant aux paysages réels qu’aux paysages rêvés, idéalisés. Il n’a besoin pour créer une œuvre que d’encre de Chine et d’une feuille blanche. Son dessin à la plume comme sa calligraphie sont équilibrés et précis. Ses œuvres sont caractérisées par un impressionnant mouvement, mais aussi par la densité. Elles transportent l’intensité de leur énergie vers le spectateur- récepteur. Cela leur suffit pour le mouvement,  la danse,  la musique éventuellement, sous toute forme, par leur intensité, juste l’utilisation de l'encre noire sur fond blanc.  Ses dessins suivent une stricte structure. Toutefois, un dessin en noir et blanc peut être tout aussi d’un fin brillant aussi clair qu’un tableau coloré. L’artiste créé en pleine force des compositions aux lignes très étudiées.  Interlocuteur passionnant, charmant et intarissable avec le spectateur, il dispose une profonde connaissance des techniques et de l’Histoire de l'art (Il est d’ailleurs lui-même une partie de cette Histoire). Enfin, s’il se veut  citoyen du monde, il vit et depuis ces dernières années partage son temps entre Athènes et la belle île de Céphalonie.

OPENING SATURDAY 9 JUIN 2012, 4:30 p.m. OF Α 19Η00
The opening will be followed by a cocktail.

The tangled paths of poetry and art (painting and poetry) Costas Evangelatos in Paris.
The inauguration of paintings, poems and drawings by Costas Evangelatos, will be held in Paris in the form of an exhibition at personnell CENTER SEVRES. This is the seventh solo exhibition of Evangelatos in Paris and the eighth in France (the first successful exhibition, entitled "Conceptualizations" was held at Les Fontaines in Chantilly in 1988). In the current exhibition titled: "ROADS ENTANGLED" compositions (paintings) displayed visually fit into a world of symbols, shapes and concepts or emerging. The exhibition is titled exactly as the collection of selected pieces of literary or musical works recently published in French. At the same time editing this anthology of poems to writing and representative drawings of the artist will be presented so that art lovers can get an overall picture but indicative of the artist's innovative research. The exhibition will run until 16 June 2012 and free admission to art lovers, from 12 to 21h.
(Facing the Bon Marche, Metro: Sevres-Babylone).

Art historian Maray GEORGOUSI wrote an article:

The important visual artist, writer, artist representation (performer), art historian Costas Evangelatos studied law at Athens University and the painting and the history of aesthetics of Contemporary Art Manhattan under the direction of teachers and Pearl Allen DAVID EHRLICH. From 1986 to 1993 he was artistic director of the DADA Gallery in Athens. He also created the art studio IS in 1990 in Athens. Then, in parallel with the painting he was also active internationally in other artistic fields: writing, poetry, art in motion (performance), body art, happenings, mail art . He has exhibited in Athens, Thessaloniki, Rochester, New York City, Avignon, Chantilly, Paris, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Nicosia, etc.., And is a member of scientific organizations, educational and artistic, since 1991 he is member of the
House of Fine Arts in Greece.
Evangelatos compositions are in no way static, but instead are characterized by dynamism and movement, achieved thanks to designers and technical skills of the artist. Furthermore, inspired by an intense lyricism of form, a poetic embellishment of reality, its landscapes so as to refer only to real landscapes dreamed landscapes, idealized. He does not need to create a work that India ink and white paper. His pen drawing as his calligraphy are balanced and accurate. His works are characterized by an impressive movement, but also by the density. They carry the intensity of their energy to the spectator-receiver. This is sufficient for their movement, dance, music may, in any form, by their intensity, using just black ink on white background. His drawings follow a strict structure. However, one drawing in black and white can be just as bright as a clear end a colorful picture. The artist created compositions in full force lines extensively studied. Interlocutor exciting, charming and everlasting with the viewer, it has a deep knowledge of techniques and art history (It is also itself a part of this volume).
Finally, if it wants a world citizen, he lives in recent years and divides his time between Athens and the beautiful island of Kefalonia.
