Every single painting by Melissinos seems like a stage where Greek
mythology, and The Theatre Of The Absurd meet with Latin American
or African performers to tell stories or sing passionate songs
about happiness, sorrows and loves lost or found. They relate
of legendary or unknown -but nevertheless- very important heroes
or heroines. Some times the protagonist is a slice of watermelon,
a chair, a table, a cactus, a palm tree, some written words and
so on... everyone and everything gets an equal opportunity on
the Melissinos “stage”. They are all important because
they are all part of life. And Life is what his art is about.
colors, the sounds, the scents, the six senses and the feelings
of life are all present all the time.
The range of Melissinos’ art varies from sketches and drawings
to paintings on canvas or three-dimensional painted assemblages,
jewelry, wearable art, poetry, plays, as well as set and costume
design. He also writes music and lyrics for the plays he writes
and which he produces whenever his need to communicate with a live
audience is urgent.
