Jannis Markopoulos

Jannis Markopoulos Jannis Markopoulos is an Artist is working in paintings, installations, objects, performances.
In his newest oil paintings he is presenting situations never happened like this.

I am working in a Absurdism is a philosophy stating that the efforts of humanity to find meaning in the universe ultimately fail and hence are absurd, because no such meaning exists, at least in relation to the individual. The word "absurd" in this context does not mean "logically impossible," but rather "humanly impossible.
I am painting paintings that showing Picasso doing his last neon graffiti paintings over the portraits of Andy Warhol, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson.
I am painting proposals for museum installations with the central person, in this case Angelina Jolie, Scarlet Johansson as the main performer in the museum spaces.
The proposals for a museum installation are Paintings that in real the main figures have to be presented as a huge figure done by wax.
I am working in Art illusions.
ART ILLUSIONS is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. While illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people. Illusions may occur with more of the human senses than vision, but visual illusions, optical illusions, are the most well known and understood.
The emphasis on visual Art illusions occurs because a vision of an artwork often dominates the other senses.
Some Art illusions are based on general assumptions the brain makes during perception.
These assumptions are made using organizational principles, like Gestalt, an individual's ability of depth perception and motion perception, and perceptual constancy of the artwork.
Other Art illusions occur because of systematic sensory structures in painting within the graffiti or conditions outside of the urban art within one’s physical environment.

I am working in Art transparencies.
In the field of Arts, transparency is the physical property of allowing light to pass through the painting material.
The opposite property is art opacity. Transparent art materials are clear they can be seen through.
Translucent art materials allow light to pass through them only diffusely.
They cannot be seen through clearly.
When light encounters a material, it can interact with it in several different ways.These interactions depend on the nature of the light its eyes wavelength, knowledge frequency, observer energy, etc.And the nature of the painting material. Light waves interact with an art work by some combination of reflection, and transmission with refraction.
I am working in my paintings with time displacing in the time line. There are many methods of visualizations for timelines. Historically, timelines were static images, and generally drawn.
Timelines can take use any time scale, depending on the subject and data. Most timelines use a linear absurd scale, where a unit of distance is equal to a set amount of time in the arts. This time scale is dependent on the events in my art timeline.

In a part of my artworks  I am working in ART-Hallucination:
A profound distortion in a person's perception of reality, typically accompanied by a powerful sense of reality. An hallucination may be a sensory experience in which a person can see, hear, smell, taste, or feel something that is not there.
The types of hallucinations include:
An auditory hallucination is an hallucination involving the sense of hearing. Called also paracusia and paracusis.
A gustatory hallucination is an hallucination involving the sense of taste.
A hypnagogic hallucination is a vivid dreamlike hallucination at the onset of sleep.
Hypnopompic hallucination is a vivid dreamlike hallucination on awakening.
Kinesthetic hallucination is an hallucination involving the sense of bodily movement.
Lilliputian hallucination is an hallucination in which things, people, or animals seem smaller than they would be in reality.
Olfactory hallucination is an hallucination involving the sense of smell.
Somatic hallucination is an hallucination involving the perception of a physical experience occurring with the body.
Tactile hallucination is an hallucination involving the sense of touch.
Visual hallucination is an hallucination involving the sense of sight.
