Constantinos's oil paintings range from small, to large scale epic canvases. Through expressive brushstrokes he creates compelling and memorable portraits of people, and animals.
Using life models, his figurative drawings often depict the head, thorough in detail, and paying careful attention to every attribute on the subject’s face, he blurs random areas of the painting giving his personal mark. His oil paintings are a skillful combination of academic realism and impressionism.
Constantinos uses a classical approach to his creations, whereby all canvases are custom-made using high-quality fabrics or wood, and skilfully treated with natural materials to ensure lasting results.
His body of work includes a series of Landscapes, Dog Heroes, and his latest, Skin or Gold.
