Sensuality in painting is the dominant feature of Michael Makroulakis’ photorealist work. Michael Makroulakis is a painter who is deeply in the know of the secrets of miniature painting and a staunch supporter of visual aesthetic beauty, of the essence in things as well as of expressiveness; he is considered to be one of the few European painters of that kind.
For Makroulakis, beauty is defined by the indisputable concepts of perfection, harmony and clarity.
A bunch of poppies painted by Makroulakis is “as if whatever is conceived by the sense of sight is then transformed into a tactile experience”, as Angelos Delivorias, Director of the Benaki Museum in Athens, points out.
The clarity of his technique adds an indelible mark on the familiar work of a sensual visual world.
Precious small and big scale artworks from the 1960’s until today, some of them crafted in Athens and the island of Syros, and some in Tehran, reveal his firm disposition towards the serene ‘gazing’ of love and life.
