Yiannis Papadopoulos studied in Vakalo school of Arts and in the West Surrey College of Art and Design. He is member of AFI group.
He tries to translate his ideas into structural forms to express the antithesis of the in and out to penetrate through a transparent surface into the inner world, to communicate.
In terms of form, his works are poised on the boundary between a freely developing open form and a controlled disciplined structure. “I like this contradiction” he mentions.
During the period from his studies to today he has used many different media but two of them have remained steady: Painting and drawing. The ones he began with.
