    Art Brokerage: Stephen Antonakos Greek-American Artist: b. 1923-2013. Stephen Antonakos was a Greek born American sculptor most well known for his abstract sculptures often incorporating neon. Antonakos moved with his family from Greece to the United States at the age of 4 and was raised in the Brooklyn, New York neighborhood of Bay Ridge. Stephen Antonakos was largely working in collage in the 1960s, until he noticed Times Square's lights at night: "I saw one thing that I loved very, very much right away," he says, "the garish colors that we can get from neon tubes [of light]." That moment instigated what would become the hallmark aesthetic of Anatonakos's long career, characterized by his creation of brightly colored light installations. Works like Arrival (2008) and Neon Table #1 (1986) have a kinship with the works of Dan Flavin, and the 1960s Light -and Space movement of Southern California that included Larry Bell, Bruce Nauman, and Doug Wheeler. Antonakos also makes drawings, watercolors, and bas-relief moldings that demonstrate a similar affinity for minimal, abstract, geometric forms. Listings wanted.
