II- Artist statement:

The classical drawing is the route to all the art discipline. It is the arm needed to go into the different domains. It helps the artist to work without difficulties or hesitation, using his talent and skills. It boots the creativity and every artwork will end up reflecting, on the artist own style, the moods and feelings of the present moment.

The artistic life should not be influenced by rules prevailing in the domain, like the "fashion" or The"tendency of the day".
This affects badly the creative capacity of an artist and obliges him to be in a system from where it is hard to get out.
This also reduce his personality, his artistic temper and tendency to the beauty, pushing him to the easy and quickly made work.

II'- Opinions personnelles expérimentées et vécues (In French)

Le dessin classique mène à toutes les disciplines de l'art et permet de s'aventurer dans tous les domaines, d'exercer sainement et sûrement ses capacités et ses dons sans à coups ni hésitation. Il mène vers la créativité personnelle en faisant ressortir ses états d'âme vécus et futurs, ses visions de la vie et donne la capacité d'exécuter des œuvres dans les disciplines variées de la créativité momentanée de la vie historique de l'artiste.
Cela m'a permis d'exécuter sans difficulté des œuvres variées dans les disciplines citées, tout au long de ma vie artistique selon l'état psychologique du moment vécu.

La vie artistique ne doit pas être freinée par des règles instaurées par une soi-disant " mode " du moment ou " tendance du jour " qui annihile la capacité de création d'un artiste en le contraignant et l'enfermant dans un genre à la mode comme dans une gangue dans laquelle il se verra enfermé et aura des difficultés pour en sortir, s'il en a le pouvoir.
Cela étouffe sa personnalité et ses tendances vers le beau et le pousse vers la facilité, l'amenant carrément à une " prostitution " de son tempérament artistique et le dirige vers une production artisanale de l'art vite fait en général actuellement en " vogue " partout.

N.B. Cela sans aucun sens péjoratif de ma part pour les deux termes employés plus haut.

L'artisanat découle en droite ligne de l'art et de la création personnelle, mais est produit en milliers d'exemplaires identiques, contrairement à l'art pictural ou en 3 dimensions, la sculpture.

III- Extracts of articles:

Al-Sayad revue

-Between wood and stone:

…Despite his art on wood, on stone Panayoti is near of the abstract art, without loosing his humans' feelings that characterise all his work. A touch of symbolism, surrealism, and a big fantasy seems to be in the nature of the artist. The "skirt" is a good example and hides a new dimension, which goes beyond the subject to reach an atmosphere of meditation.

-The woman:

The woman is almost everywhere in his work.
The aim on sculpting the body is to reach the beauty as a value.
The work of Panayoti has an expressive force and a unique beauty.
He is a professional in all the materials; he knows how to deal with them and how to respect them.
Finally, he is giving them the dimension of time: the mythological time, the present and the future.
His work is a marriage between reality and symbolism.

AL-Anwar newspaper

Panayoti find a part of his inspiration in the antique Greek art (mythology).
A big lover of Beauty, he sculpts women bodies.
He said: "When a sculptor is able to finish a classic work, a nude, he is a professional."

Al-Khawater newspaper

What is new in the exhibition of Joseph Panayoti?
We can see forty wonderful masterpieces in different materials and sizes.
Under the light, all of those sculptures are superb, done with love and nicely finished.
They have the touch of this excellent and creative artist who gave them life.
Hundred eyes visitors have a dialogue with our statues; significations, symbols call you upon while you are meditating in front of those talkative statues.

La Revue du Liban

Joseph Panayoti's sculptures are in different materials and always with a perfect finishing; Nudes in wood, ivory, Plexiglas or stone, bust-women in onyx Plexiglas or stone. He is sculpting with a big love and respect for the material. Classic or stylized, his sculptures are magnificent.
