A dedicated painter whose unique and tactile craftsmanship is evident throughout his work, Coutouvidis succeeds
in communicating a particular mood, emotion or even atmosphere through seemingly mundane and ordinary objects
and everyday scenes.
Coutouvidis describes his motivation to paint in his own words,"The departure point is always an encountered
and experienced reality that allows for the exploration of different states of mind." His attraction to painting a wide range
of subject matter from still life paintings, landscapes, street scenes to interiors is emotionally inspired,
with the intention "to try distil the essence of a place, situation or object," says Coutouvidis.
