Dimitris Yeros

BIOGRAPHY

Born 1948


Dimitris Yeros is a Greek artist-photographer. He is one of the most influential Greek artists of his generation.


Dimitris Yeros stands as a unique figure in contemporary art. Painter, photographer, poet and performance artist, Yeros bridges these worlds with exceptional originality. He is, however, best known as a painter and photographer, creating lyrical and surreal paintings and provocative and richly textured photographs. Although he approaches these two media from different vantage points, one can detect a painterly eye in his photographs and a photographer's sensibility in his paintings. The results are beautifully crafted and arresting images that beckon the viewer to pause and contemplate the human condition.


Yeros has had 52 individual exhibitions of his works held in Greece and abroad in Köln, Düsseldorf, New York, Kassel, Strasbourg, Bochum (The Bochum Museum), Oxford (Oxford University), Darmstadt, Indiana, USA (Ball State Art Gallery), Heidelberg, Nicosia, Mannheim Milan, Ann Arbor-Michigan (Kelsey Museum), Berlin, and elsewhere. He has also participated in numerous international group exhibitions, Biennials and Triennials in many parts of the world.
