Live painting in Athens

On the 8th day of February 2019 I will be on the stage of Temple Athens (Athens, Greece), together with Attila Csihar, Sofia Sarri and other super talented musicians, forming the 13 member CHAMBER ORCHESTRA which will play “Canticles of The Holy Scythe” by Lüüp. My role in this amazing show is to catch the energy of the music, to be the hunter and bring this ghost on canvas. You can call it live painting even the most complex things have no name. See you there. A production of Underflow Record Store & Art Gallery .

Soen | Lotus | Animation

This is already my second video premiere for 2019. After the one made for At The Gates, today I present you my work for Soen, which is a full animation video. I wrote some lines a while ago about it:

There might come a time when you feel the emptiness of a life based on the society’s game and its stake. You might come to a day when you realize that you are actually alone, although surrounded by victims of your madness, including even yourself. You might discover that during the unfolding of your obsession to haunt illusions, the room where you spend your daily life becomes empty; despite that it is filled with letters, pictures and various objects left by those who were someday around. There is no future and no past, so if you turn your soul towards those around you during this continuum present, perhaps you will never live the days I am talking about.

But you know, is just an advice, I am good at giving advice to others, but that doesn’t mean I reached that level. Still, this is the video about. I hope one day I will learn the lesson.

Cosmic Rain | Seekers

Here is the cover artwork I did for the upcoming Cosmic Rain album, entitled “Seekers”. I guess the illustration speaks by itself.

At The Gates | The Mirror Black | Video

I am extremely excited to present you my first official video for 2019. This one was made for almighty At The Gates and their track entitled “The Mirror Black” in the version featuring guest vocals by Rob Miller (Amebix, Tau Cross). I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart to my incredible A Team, for helping me bringing this into our dimension: Gina Sandulescu – additional filming, Andrei Tudorache – actor, logistics & almighty creator of the “mirror mask” and the “tree hands”, Ioana Dragan – actress. A big HUGE THANK YOU goes to Absintheria Sixtina for helping us with their amazing location for some of the scenes, total logistical support and even some acting in the shadows. Enjoy.

A new beginning

Last 5 days of my life were pure magical. I forgot about time, about which day is the current one, I went all the way into an amazing creative world. I had a fabulous time at Grindhouse Studios Athens where the dearly beloved alien-talented pyramid top singer Sofia Sarri recorded the vocals for an album which I am doing together with her. Yes, this is first disclosed page of a top-classified file (more information will be posted soon). We couldn’t do anything without our beloved friend, amazing sound engineer, and the solver of everything-you-need-in-this-life-to-make-great-things-to-happen-and-life-to-be-beautiful, George Bokos . Really, it was beyond amazing experience, by all means, at all levels and these 2 amazing entities succeed, by their talent, dedication, friendship and open hearts to re-assemble and put again in function a Frankenstein turned to pieces which I was before landing to Athens. For me, this is a new beginning, by all means!
