Dimitri Likissas (Belgian, b. 1969), Barbie, oil on canvas, 98 x 98 cm.
Best known for his colored dots arrangements which transform imagery into abstract, geometric forms, Dimitri Likissas is a highly-talented artist who explores the unlimited potential of chromatic and tonal scale, visual planes and volume with a two-dimensional framework. Viewing his dynamic works of art is an exciting optical experience since his pictographic arrangement seems to emerge ahead of our vision boundaries. As the colored spots matrix progress and retreat, undulate and combine, it imitates the way in which the universe works in the lively sphere of both the micro- and macrocosmos.
