From Lafcadio Hearn to Roland Barth, Japan’s “intangible and fluid” charm fascinated writers, artists, thinkers, and travelers. Like an ethnologist of every day life, a wanderer probing with an insatiable curiosity and indefinable desire the density and subtlety of a distant culture, Stefanos Rokos’ work wondrously captures a world of tension and eroticism, allusive gestures and powerful signs, disparate conjunctions, and contrasting representations. A personal visual diary poetically inspired by the artist’s travel experience in Japan, based on it and at the same time moving away from it to expand the dimensions of the real and the visible.

Stefanos Rokos is a Greek contemporary artist. He was born in Athens in 1977. He has had solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad and participated in international Art Fairs. He has designed album covers, book covers and posters for concerts, films and theatre productions. store
