“Yiannis Karimalis is a true renaissance man. His artistry seems to know no bounds. He is a chef, delicious meals plated to perfection. He is an extraordinary hair stylist and most recently, he is a painter creating stunning and unique pieces of art. I’ve had the good fortune to have eaten at John’s table and have my hair beautifully styled by him. Great experiences and fond memories. Now I have 2 beautiful pieces of John’s art on my wall in my Raleigh condo, where they give me permanent and great pleasure every day. As John continues to create art his passion is so apparent it leaps off the canvas- expressed with colour, movement and joyful subjects. I can’t wait to see his new work in his latest collection.”

Yannis has been taking care of my hair fabulously for years! However, Yannis is equally as talented with his amazing artwork, whether oil paintings or acrylics his original artwork is stunning. My husband Greg and I love one of Yannis’ original pieces that we display proudly in our home. What I love is the creativity and uniqueness in each piece whether faces, abstract or his love of the garden and colorful florals. I was stunned when I learned his craft for painting was all self taught, and how he started playing around with paints as a young boy growing up in Greece! As we say this type of raw talent cannot be taught it is born within us. If you ever have a chance to see a display of Yannis’ artwork you will be awestruck and to own a piece is even better! Simply amazing!
