Balasz Takac is alias of Vladimir Bjelicic who is actively engaged in art criticism, curatorial and artistic practice.

At first glance the art of Jannis Varelas appears reminiscent of the photo-montages of the Dada artist Hannah Höch. Unlike Höch, whose expression is driven by a sense of irony, Varelas propels exaggeration and coarseness.
