“A Greek Odyssey of SUPERDOTS with Philip Tsiaras” Interview in Volta Magazine
In a mosaic of millions of dots, the international pop artist presents modern paintings of celebrities that he calls “Divas, Personas, Monsters, and Friends”. A child of two worlds, Greek-American Tsiaras fuses the old world with the new while creating a personal universe that exhibits a brilliance of rare creations as a painter, sculptor, photographer, and poet. Born in the United States, the son of Greek immigrants who left worn-torn Northern Greece, he received a privileged education at Amherst College where he studied music and comparative literature. A trained classical musician, he received a fellowship for his own poetry as well as his translations of contemporary Greek poets, primarily Ritsos, Cavafy, and Kariotakis.
