Periklis Kostopoulos's work constitutes color and mental explosions.
The color ejections are magnificent, authentic and far-reaching. They submit inexhaustible impressions, associations, experiences, situations.
The essential characteristic is that his work is absolutely personal and in the century of globalisation it has achieved to maintain its own personal touch.
