Kostas Lales: Mind-Body Connection

“My art focuses on the human mind and body, the only living being to possess the ability and intelligence to evolve and be conscious of the surrounding environment.

Saying this, the current period of the pandemic has helped me to partly lose a sense of myself, to discover and to develop unknown aspects of my work. I’ve tapped into first time experiences such as being confined within the studio, left to create with the content of my own mind and thoughts.”
