The “reflection of reality” by the talented artist born in Cyprus in 1988.
Based on the idea that there is no single objective reality but, rather, many forms determined by those we conceive and choose to perceive, Antoniou explores the possibility of the endless creation and production of images (that one may later call reality). As Aontoniou states, one’s individual perspective is akin to freedom — being “free to choose how they wish to see the things around them” as well as “their own reality.”
His paintings do not stem from a specific idea or theme. He consciously avoids focusing on specific questions or particular answers and instead, creates new pictures, which generate unknown questions. Thus without great thought, paints vague spaces, objects which appear to be misplaced, both through time and dimension, next to items disjoint, with figures lost in an intense painterly environment, but in the end coexist and interact, giving meaning to their existence, tell a story and express a sentiment.
