It’s Very Nearly All Greek To Me…

Three sculptures by Michael Camakaris

Arts Project Australia and Leonard Joel Auction House are thrilled to announce APA artist Michael Camakaris’ solo exhibition It’s Very Nearly All Greek To Me…


It’s Very Nearly All Greek To Me… will take place at Leonard Joel Auction House from Friday 23 June – Wednesday 28 June.

Michael Camakaris is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice encompasses drawing, painting, collage, printmaking and ceramics.

Characterised by subtle detailing and layered graphical mark-making Michael’s bold compositions often draw from art history, referencing surrealism, dada and abstraction.

Commenting on industrialisation and the environment through the depiction of apocalyptic scenes and sensitive renderings of the natural world, conceptual rigour drives Michael’s work.

In 2019-20 Leonard Joel Auction House welcomed Michael as part of a new Traineeship Program.

Michael joined the Leonard Joel team for two days a week developing arts industry auction experience. He worked across all departments, developing a range of skills to support the business, including client and colleague-facing skills, handling, presentation, auction and despatch skills across various departments.

A celebration of the time spent, It’s Very Nearly All Greek To Me… showcases Michael’s distinct style and talent.
