Leave your prayer after the tone...

Oil painting on canvas  |.  Size: 100x100cm  39,4’’x 27,5’’.  |.  Original and prints.  Available for sale

Although this -satirical- painting is quite different from the previous one (“Freedom”) it is also a sort of continuity. In a world of chaos and technological advancement where cheap distractions,  “fast-food prophets” and uneducated influencers have replaced common sence and values. It is not intended as a critic on any religion but rather as a humorous statement on how many people view faith today. Technology is the new God.  So... download the prayer app (don’t laugh, there are actualy many out there) and leave your prayer. If you are lucky they may also have a discount where you can leave 2 prayers for the price of one :)

Various oil painting works by Michel Devanakis

As with most "restless"artists, my art has evolved quite a bit during the years. Although I still cherish the realistic drawings, I went from a classic approach to a more colorful and contemporary style. Figurative paintings that are giving me the opportunity to explore and entertain my curiosity while creating. To me, Art is joy.

To see a sample of my works, take a look at the Gallery section of this site.

Unfortunately I still miss a lot of paintings that were sold some years ago as I did not took pictures of them to keep on my portfolio. I was quite careless at that time and traveled a lot.

If you happen to own any of these early works, please get in touch with me, as I would love to hear from you, and have some pictures of these "lost" paintings!
