Yanni Souvatzoglou

 

Greek from abroad (Constantinople) and son of a cotton merchant, Yanni Souvatzoglou inherited his creative talent from his mother, a portrait painter.

From a very young age Yanni experimented with fabric painting before later moving into graphic design, where he was introduced to industrial photographic reproduction and development of seemingly three dimensional images. His skills in graphic art have provided a platform for the creation of his sculptures. Drawing influence from the Minoan and Cycladic era, Yanni often evokes this imagery through his sculptural concepts.

Since 1980 Yanni has maintained an atelier for multiple techniques and art applications. He has not abandoned commercial design and many corporations have continued trust in his creative imagination for a variety of manifestations. Yanni’s art is collected worldwide and he is represented by local and international galleries. He has enjoyed major shows and has been awarded prizes for several pieces of is work.

Yanni has studied in Athens under the supervision of Prof. P. Tetsis.
