Achilleas Mesaikos is a painter, illustrator and graphic designer whose work is centered around themes and portraits of everyday life.
“I met Achilleas 10 years ago, just before he graduated from school – me being 10 years older than him – and I spotted his natural talent for drawing, and particularly comics, which he was involved with at the time. A pure talent that accompanies a kind and special person. Achilleas’ collective self-awareness is evident in his work, a coordinated chaos, powerful and of high aesthetics. His background in comics combined with his personal influences, result to art that, through enigmatic and at times sad images, creates a feeling of awe, through soft but nevertheless complicated colors. He is an artist that has a great deal of things to say and offer. There is so much to be expected from him, so much for us yet to contemplate and enjoy”.
