Sofokli Jorgo Telo
I was born in Albania in 1976.
Since early age I was surrounded by art after being influenced by my father. He was an artist, poet, musician and painter.
After observing nature , people in the province and working with sketches, experimenting with oil paints, at age 14
I studied for 4 years at art school in the hometown of Gjirokastra.
After finishing school at age 20 I moved to Athens where the capital Helen came in broad areas of knowledge and perfection and in the company of many other artists.
I went through so many stages with oil paints until I found what suit me more.
I work for many years in Greece in different galleries and in 2015 I decided to open my own shop right in the center of Athens below the acropolis temple .
2015 was a year of success for me after participating in two international exhibition. One was in April in NYC and one in December in Miami.
In 2018 I moved in usa trying to discover and live more in the multidimensional of contemporary art …
I have so much love and desire for painting and that makes me enter deeply in beautiful art finding new way and open new doors for my feelings…
Both the two Art creations that I show here are made with a long proces with fabric ( not canvas) with oil colours.
Started like a “aksident” back in 2004 when one night I find my self without canvas and a very old friend coming in my atelier…
I grabbed the tablecloth … and sketched her unique silhouette of the stand … The next day followed with plaster and the following day gave life to the rare habit of her look …
Always in my heart (A)
Also “Come to me” made this year( 2019)
As a inspiration from the past and maybe more will following with the same way …
They both are very unique and hard tecnique… like the old masters worked on the wall …Are two piece of art that can moved and can decorate a unique home and keep alive forever our mistics unique moments…
Thank you ( T )
