Noel Dimitrios Stavropoulos

“For me, there is no particular recipe for a creation or perception in any medium. If I found myself trapped in a specific process, my works would destroy themselves through repetition. Constantly searching for new ways to create expression keeps my works, as well as the artist, fresh.”
