Tryphonos’ works in different media are all emotional snapshots of a set point in time. The artworks are raw and uncompromising. They defy narrative and command a visceral reaction.
“The most important aspect of my work is not to feel constrained by medium or style, or to belong to a particular school of artistry. I want all of my pieces to be emotional snapshots of a set point in time and rarely revisit or make amendments to them so that they remain raw and uncompromising. For these reasons I am able to retrospectively view pieces as an outsider and this liberates me from applying rigid meanings or influences to my creations.”
