Charis Tsevis’s Mosaic Portraits are Stunning

Greek artist and visual designer Charis Tsevis creates stunning mosaic portraits. In a recent segment of his African Brick series, he depicted beautiful black women created in his unique style. He was inspired to create it when he visited the African continent.

Tsevis fell in love with Africa at first sight. He enjoyed learning about different cultures there and loved nature, animals, people, and the history he encountered, especially the houses.

“People used bricks and any kind of material they could find to build a home, a nest, a shelter. I have seen so much courage and so much creativity in all these houses. For me, these are the celebration of life. An incredible puzzle, an amazing mosaic of symbols, messages, and feelings. It was a no-brainer to use this idea for my personal art,” he tells My Modern Met.

Among the portraits from the recent series is the writer Amanda Gorman, whose portrait is called And Still I Rise after the famous poem by Maya Angelou, and reggae artist Keznamidi.
