Omiros spurred the minimalist movement with Yves Klein and wrote his own pictorial language in art creating a new scale, new definition of surface, new syntax of relationships among space, displacing hierarchies with powerful and intricate self-generating structures, at the juncture and conjuncture of abstraction and figuration.
Omiros painted the iconic holy stories of the Byzantine as an artist living in the 20th and 21st Centuries, 500+ hundred years after the end of the Byzantine Empire.
He developed stylistic expressions such as elongated figures that rise beyond the natural to the transcendental. Explosions of color transforming figures, movements and expressions. His paintbrush contorts, penetrates and achieves rays of light, textures of fabrics and flesh into unbuilt and dreamlike places of reverence, giving safe passage to the spirit, to worship and feel the divine. His figures although abstracted, dramatic and yet expressionistic, are imbued with the sensation of the holy.
