Artist

Maxim

Maxim, The Prodigy front man and talented fine artist, has been with the band since its inception in 1990 and has toured all seven of their studio albums extensively around the world, picking up numerous awards along the way including MTV and NME accolades for recognition of their unique style and innovative music, as well as their chart success with countless hits. Maxim has more recently become known for his creativity as a contemporary artist under the pseudonym of MM (Double M). He has been creating paintings, multi-media collages, and sculptures for the last 20 years; his art has been featured on various home goods, such as bone China, and soon-to-be on candles, cushions, and wallpaper. Since 2012, he has displayed his mixed media artworks in various exhibitions across the world. MM is well known for his sinister, yet beautiful art. MM’s creative process tends to evolve naturally, without too much forward planning. He prefers to use the board as a base, as he enjoys being able to mutilate it and create chaos within the work. Often his works are finished with resin. He feels this gives a certain beauty and preciseness to the images, keeping them locked and untouchable behind the resin. He is self-taught and has been known to use many different random objects in his works, spray paints, bullets, blades, and pills to name a few. He also uses acrylic and ceramic paints, and anything he can get his hands on that will add to the texture of his work. The paintings are a journey into MM’s mind and have a surreal edge that takes you somewhere deep into his imagination. All of MM’s paintings contain signs of strength and positivity while putting a “spin on things” and seeing them from different angles. Grenades carried on the breeze by a raft of red balloons; skull-faced butterflies brandishing Samurai swords, and gun-toting cats are just a few of the surreal fantasy worlds created by MM. Since 2012 MM has supported various charities and donated artwork to raise money for research into Breast Cancer, BT ArtBox for ChildLine, Shelter, NHS Charities Together, Young Minds, and Chain of Hope (cardiac care for children around the world). Maxim currently lives and works in Essex, United Kingdom.

Artist

Ermina Avramidou

Ermina Avramidou was born in 1974 in Thessaloniki, Greece. She studied Freehand and Line Drawing at the School for Applied Arts of Thessaloniki and visual arts at the Beaux Arts Institute in Thessaloniki. She graduated with a degree in Interior Design at the College of Applied Arts, Thessaloniki and is currently continuing her studies to obtain an MA in Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Arts, UK.
Ermina Avramidou’s works are visual illusions. An almost unreal world unfolds before our eyes, reminding us that the most colourful, dreamlike and revealing scenes are those emerging from darkness. Foggy forests, exotic birds, starry skies, waterfalls, tropical rains, strange sea creatures are leaping out of her paintings like impressive stained glasses picturing landscapes which may not exist, yet seem familiar.
Artist

Stergios Stamos

Stergios Stamos was born in Greece in 1964.

He is a graduate of the School of Fine Arts of Thessalonika (V. Dimitreas Workshop) 1984-1989.

Composition and drawing are dominant in his early artwork while colour is supplementary. There is complete absence of human figure while making clear references to dry land and the sea. He is influenced by the Thessalian plain and Mount Athos. He introduces upright landscapes, unlike the traditional horizontal rectangle ones.

In the 2000s he presents wall structures and installations using aluminium, neon light, fluorescent lamps and plexiglas incorporating writing in order to reanimate the image as well as refer to the archetypal form of communication. Still he does not abandon painting which he uses partially, just like speech, so as to express feelings and lure the viewer into a game where life converses with death and art embraces technology.

His most recent artworks Immigrations (2012), In my country (2014) and Geographies (2017) which consist of multilevel installations, photos and paintings, deal with refugees on a footslog while making a clear reference to Greece’s financial crisis.

He has created theatre props and costumes.
