Pierre Diamantopoulo

Pierre Diamantopoulo has two distinct strands to his figurative style. They seem to be intellectually and emotionally worlds apart, but they share the same impetus.

One is a cool and measured response to a profound sense of unrest. In this work, figures fly in defiance or are challenged by their environments. They ‘trippingly’ negotiate upheaval or uncertainties — each work is a balancing act, a metaphor for a precarious state of living or existence. Androgynous and anonymous human figures tilt and fall away – on and off objects that also teeter on a chaotic or shifting stage. Figures may be set free against strongly convergent lines, shapes and forms.

The other strand of Pierre Diamantopoulo’s practice is ambiguous, allegorical and atavistic, but still concerned with mercurial forces. Here, he works on impulse— mixing dark foolery, the poetic and the literary with theatre and folklore— blended with a sort of logical nonsense. This may be a voyage into the past, personal or absurd, diverted by the raw and primitive, with the wit, the mimic and maverick on board. These works are often executed with an immediate, freer hand, exploiting the texture of the raw material.

Pierre Diamantopoulo

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
