Photos by Vas Gardiakos

Those that are familiar with me and my art know how much I love all forms of fine art photography especially abstract and patterns. My art, to borrow from musical terms that define genres, may be called ambient, atmosphere or space. Occasionally I also shoot what may be considered mainstream photography but usually prefer the unusual.

Much of my art can be framed and hung on a wall, "kremaseto opos thelis" (designated by the Greek letters Kappa Omicron Theta) meaning it can be exhibited any way at the discretion of the owner. Some of the patterns can be used on neck ties, scarves, sheets, pillow cases, towels, place mats, wallpaper and rugs or what have you.

Any individual may use any of these art pieces for your personal computer desktop or print and hang on your wall.

The digitally manipulated or should I say digitally mangled images below were either my photos or paintings I produced through the years. I used Corel PhotoPaint or Adobe PhotoShop to edit the images. All my digital art is in .jpg format. All are untitled.

1999 Found Object Sculptures - Crystal Beach, Florida, USA
Click on image for enlargement or click here to view slide show


The concept for the Crystal Beach Found Object Sculpture photos came about from the many invitations I received over the years to attend receptions to sculpture exhibits. The photos on the invitation were so well taken with dramatic shadows that when I saw the original sculpture which was lacking the dramatic shadows I was often disappointed. I then decided to make sculptures from found objects and shoot them with their shadows. Unfortunately anyone that looked at my photos was more interested in the sculpture than the photo of the sculpture. They wanted to purchase the sculpture which unfortunately existed only for the eye of the camera. Just as well as many of these sculptures would have suffered from the lack of strong shadows when exhibited without concern of dramatic lighting. Oh well!

Most of the photos below are abstracts shot in 1999 in Florida. Most were shot with a 35mm camera. All are untitled.

Mostly Kalamata Earthquake Photos - Greece
Click on image for enlargement or click here to view slide show

All of the 1992 photos were taken while residing in Kalamata Greece. The 1986, "7.7" earthquake destroyed most of Kalamata. This occurrence exposed many old weathered and interesting surfaces. I saw the artistic potential which I exploited with my camera. These two dimensional images are not manipulated in any way. It is amazing what chance can do.

My Art Is An Iconic Monument in Los Angeles

The proposed stunning Petersen Automotive Museum designed by your firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates has a starling similarity to my artwork shown below your image. What do you think, is it similar to my #911 abstract?

This innovative architectural wonder will be become an icon recognizable worldwide. I wish them the best.
