Dipsomaniac Mr. Gigi (George ) -Private collection 1995

“Nea Gigi” – Mr. Gigi, is a character which reflects upon a direct social result of the transition period. The name is not inspired by any existing person but rather by a social state and the inherent alcohol abuse. I wanted to approach the issue with a visual perspective of deformation of reality and inherent transformation of the world around us when we look at it under the influence of heavy alcohol usage. In order to express the dimension of destruction which impacts the social fabric, some of the works were executed on large wardrobes doors. The collection was created during my student years.
