Roses, gardenias, tulips, poppies, zinnias, daisies and anemones have given us a living, but we never really looked closely at what gave them life. By focusing on their purpose to captivate, to create Vangelis elevates the flower from decoration to a lesson of life. Born in 1953 in , on the island of Krete, he was the first son into a family consisting of about four siblings, 40 cousins and a multitude of aunts and uncles. Since his first encounter with oil colors at a very early age, his fascinating journey through art could fill many novels. Vangelis Andriotakis is an artist whose work follows a great tradition, the tradition of vision and classic excellence associated with the artists of his native island of Krete. From the masterpieces of the Minoan civilization to the paintings of El Greco, to the writings of Kazantzakis, this beautiful Mediterranean island has been the birthplace for some of the world’s most respected artists. Like all classics, Vangelis is reviewed by the judgment of following periods. But unlike some of the greats of earlier eras, it has been impossible to pass easy verdicts on him, because of the sheer exceptional diversity of his work. The mere scope of his output makes it next to impossible to engage with it all, and his numerous amounts of work has not all begun to be catalogued, described, analyzed, or indeed even made accessible, in every case, to critical scrutiny or to the public eye. Whatever we say about Vangelis must remain provisional for the time being.
