The solo exhibition of Giannis Adamakos, entitled "New works 2019-2021", is presented by Culture, Sports and Youth Organization of the Municipality of Athens (OPANDA) at the Gallery of the Municipality of Athens, from October 12 to December 12, 2021.

Consistent follower of stochastic abstraction, o Giannis Adamakos is one of the most renowned Greek painters. His exhibition at the Gallery of the Municipality of Athens gathers works of the last three years (2019-2021), revealing in relief the research mood of the artist and his belief in the emotional power of color.

Throughout his artistic career, Adamakos examines the inherent possibilities of abstraction and the contemplative qualities of color. In his new works, the cross dominates - as an internal structural element -.

As he notes: "When I work, I am interested in painting the distance between the concrete and the abstract, between the explosion and the cataclysm, I am interested in taking advantage of the random and integrating it into an organized painting surface. The horizon, the calmness emitted by the horizontal line and the anxiety, the elevation caused by the vertical, create the grid on which I build my work ".

The skillfulness in painting bothers Adamakos. When he realizes that his works tend in this direction, he begins to intervene by changing their appearance. In order to complete a table, to achieve the desired balance between the color bands and the tonal gradations, a time-consuming surgical procedure is finally required - surgery, not in the sense of treatment, but in the sense of attention, accuracy, skill, but also of continuous correction. How can a painting have color balance without looking beautiful and "neat"? How does this balance come about, naturally and effortlessly, without necessarily distinguishing the painter's effort? Can random forms emerge that integrate organically into the painting surface of the painting? These are some of the key questions that Adamakos raises with his new work.
