Born in Greece by a Greek mother and Italian father, Vassilios Roberto Dragani has already displayed his works in various Italian and international galleries. His recent works take inspiration from Greek Mythology, which is prevalent in art because it resonates across time, embodying new forms while keeping a recognizable base. Like art, it has the capacity to compress past and present. Mythology demands to be transplanted into the present, reinterpreted according to present-day ideas or anxieties. In the process, it offers a means of either cloaking or confronting real life––or both. Vassilios uses gold colors to give an aura of immortality to his paintings and make them a sacred casket of his creativity.
