Aris Maragkopoulos has started painting from an early age, and through the same path he moved to photography, and then to various multimedia projects…
Αll this industry constitutes in the course of his life time a whole workshop in progress.
An amateur art studio, in fact, where A.M. defends himself regularly against social barbarity, rudeness and ugliness…
A.M.'s workshop is a private niche of artefacts, a field of experiment, a personal museum etc. etc. etc.
If you desperately feel the need to SEE, sooner or later you begin TO TOUCH; you touch everything at your hands' reach: the soil, the plants, other animals of your kind. You get smeared with pigments, or you let your sweat blend freely with blood and dirt while scribbling down an impossible idea.
For you to see means to attempt your timid steps towards Beauty and Truth in all possible forms.
This is what children do in their strenuous effort to grow up as fast as possible.
