Inspiration is a very important concept for many artists. Haris Tsevis is one of those artists who are scrupulous about the source of their inspiration. Born in 1967 in Athens, the capital of Greece, the artist is known for his admirable mosaic work. The artist, who from time to time creates works of art for the world’s leading brands, also makes full use of the possibilities of traditional materials used in mosaic art in his work. But not only the artistic technique that he developed over the years and made completely unique distinguishes Zevis from many other artists. The Greek artist is also distinguished from other artists by extremely interesting sources of inspiration.
One of the elements that the artist often deals with in his work is Africa. The biggest source of inspiration is traditional African houses. Often built with nothing but bare brick, these traditional homes are embodied in the mystery of African culture, the strength of Africa, the resilience of the African people, or the beauty of the African woman in the artist’s mosaics.
Magnificent mosaics created by the artist based on traditional African houses make up a series he calls “African Bricks”. The artist who created the first African Bricks series in 2016 completed the second part of the series in 2021. Recently, the third part of African Bricks met with art lovers.
