ODYSSEUS YAKOUMAKIS (1956)
Born in Athens,
Michael Odysseus Yakoumakis studied
painting at the Academia delle Belle Arte of Naples, Italy and at the
same time got a degree in geology from the University of that same
city. He continued his studies in the Chinese and Japanese
painting and the Sumi-e (1985-1990) and was thoroughly engaged with the
study of the history of comic (2001-2003). Concurrently he is
involved in the practice of the ancient eastern war arts (Kendo and
Karate) having reached the levels of Sandan and Shodan. He
his first one-man show in Athens (2003) and has participated in group
exhibitions abroad as well. Since 2003 too he is teaching
and traditional Chinese and Japanese painting. He is the
(2004) of the group "Romantic Anonymous", a branch of the international
movement "Stuckism International". In his work, already
influenced by the Chinese and Japanese painting, he rejects the
meaningful art and concentrates himself in the pictorial creation which
he considers as an ever lasting field of endless artistic
research. He lives and works in Athens.
