Elegies of the dark shades of MAUVE.

Mauve does not constitute any random tone of the colour palette. It is registered as the first synthetic dye in history that ushered in the democratisation of colour in the modern era. At the same time the psychological interpretation of colours labels mauve as “mysterious”- to say the least: one edge of its spectrum exudes power, superiority and lavishness whereas its darker hues reflect the romantic aspects of the psyche dominated by introversion, thoughtfulness and self-criticism.

Dimitris Mytas is a photographer (b. 1970) based in Athens Greece.

He was introduced to the world of photography in 1992. Since then, he insists on developing his creative relationship with the medium on a daily basis. In fact, he continues to believe that aesthetics is the ethics of the future.

He has presented his work in six solo exhibitions in Athens Greece: “Untitled”/Diavasi/1998, “Insight”/Photo Circle Gallery/1999, “Faces”/Epi Kolono Theatre/2003, “Zero Ten”/M55projects Gallery/2011, “Hospital”/Eikastikos Kyklos Gallery/2016, “Dreamtigers”/Ikastikos Kyklos DL Gallery/2019.
