Issue #18 

   'I have the mindset of a painter. That's my identity. I couldn't abandon that even if I wanted to. In Greek the word for painter is zõgraphos  which means somone who draws life. The Greek is much more precise. It's a matter of living experience.

You can't say exactly when for the first time it was that I got interested in painting or images, precisely when it was - some particular morning or afternoon. But one day lost in time, at a certain hour, you understand that painting is everything.'

Jannis Kounellis
(1936 - 2017)
