Fotiadis started drawing and developed a love of visual Art from an early age. His
artwork has explored various themes and techniques but has always been primarily inspired by
the imagery of his early childhood years when he spent extended summers in Greece. In recent
years, Fotiadis’s trips to Greece have focused on an immersion in classical antiquity. What has
resulted is his open-ended drawing project started in 2019, called “The Solace of Antiquity.” The
drawings in this project, done in graphite, colored pencil, and charcoal, document the ruins of
ancient sites, and explore the effects of the luminous Aegean light on the architectural remnants
there. Equally informed by philosophy and academic drawing techniques rooted in optical
theory, Fotiadis’s drawings reveal the unique and visceral metaphysical character of these
ancient places that transcends space and time.
