About

orestis-ilias-visual-artist

Orestis Ilias is a visual artist, based in Athens, who deals with conceptual, story telling and documentary photography. His projects are basically influenced by social, political and humanistic stimuli.

The basic perception that permeates the majority of his projects is the concept of individual and collective memory. Ιn his works he seeks the expression of human emotions, most of the time without the depiction of people.

Through the works he shows how he sees the outside world, connecting his inwardness to the external movement driven by feelings of self and embodied experience. 

From various photography art to lighting installations, from colorful paintings to custom-designed murals, Orestis accepts commissions from collectors, interior designers, decorators, architects and individuals for purchasing or to create custom artworks
