In ancient times, artists where called writers because they drew with lines. They wrote on vessels or walls. The writing or line, is the first expression of art. Writing with a stylus, you draw a line with a pointy dagger on a wall. For me that line is a primary element to fully express your idea. That’s what Thanasis Lalas does, he draws, he writes in a primary way. Colour helps him finish his artwork. He has a way of his own, spontaneous. He can write and also draw. Many times we draw freely while talking on the phone. There is no need for seriousness. What we create should happen freely. Thanasis Lalas’ paintings have bright colors and exuberant natural decorations. Lalas the painter writes and narrates people, their passion, their temperament, something we all have.
