Elias Avramidis is a visual artist based in East London. His work often deals with the human figure within an aquatic geometry of colours. Thematically, he has been dealing with imaginary islands and contemporary mysticism through icons and hagiography. His practice involves colour pencils and crayons on textured paper. The human figures are based on live models which he photographs, keeping them uncoloured so that they appear as alien and unintegrated as possible in the aquatic environment. This is both an ecological metaphor and a way of expressing the anthropocenic peculiarity of our planetary emplacement.
