"Creativity is the act of discovery and creativity lies in every person, we just have to give shape to our own thoughts and bring our own thoughts to life. Creative people are not conventional and do not believe in only superstition, they have a strong desire to uncover truth, are highly intelligent and are constantly coming up with ideas which are innovative. A creative person is most truly driven by their
sensation and intuitive knowledge."  -  James Hondros.
Artist paintings by James Hondros attempt to bridge inner and outer realities with a  rich experience of the beautiful, the sublime, form and matter. Within his art bears meaning which transforms boundaries to become ambitious while softly aesthetic. As an intuitive painter the whole work is an expression of an understanding and authentic experience. His work negotiates complex arguments about abstraction and figuration with a characteristic virtuosity reliant on painter and historian's knowledge. This is a form of synthesis James can do by bringing together heterogeneous components, information and emotion which he understands well and coupling it with the ambition to communicate
through oil paint on canvas. Both the processing of his subject selection and choice of colours speak a language of their own.
