SOLO EXHIBITION : A BRUSH WITH THE BLUES
Feb 24 – April 26
The opening on Sunday February 23rd, was a near ‘sell out show’!!
- Hosted by ARGO Fishop Artspace 318 Queens Parade, Fitzroy North, Melbourne
- The show was opened by the multi award winning photographer Michael Teo
- A live Greek music jam took place with friends on the day. Music as an integral part of the exhibition made the day full of joy and great energy for all who attended
- Covid 19 restrictions in Victoria started a couple of weeks after the show launched so I thank the ‘Art Angels’ for scheduling the opening when I did..phew!
This was an exhibition of new paintings & sculptures based on the Greek Blues: A musical style forged by refugees, outsiders &rebels
A Brush with the Blues provided an insight into the music, history and current life of Rebetika (also known as the Greek Blues), a rich cultural phenomenon full of artistry and courage, exploring values and themes still relevant today. All the art in this exhibition was inspired by this beautiful and historically rich genre of music that impacted Greece and continues to be expressed and developed, further inspiring generations beyond its borders.
I aim to update the Blog, with a video capturing the vibe on the day of the opening, by the end of June 2020. Around the same time I will be uploading more artworks from the show in: ART GALLERY and the few pieces currently available to : ART FOR SALE
2 articles were written about the show by Neos Kosmos publication here in Melbourne
A NEW HOME FOR THE MODERN ICON !
I recently launched www.moderniconart.com
a new website devoted to my Byzantine iconography inspired works. This brings together all my modern icons from the original series of 2000-2002 as well as any recent ones.
They needed a special home, independent of this website, where the stories behind the original series in particular could be elaborated on.
You will also find info’ on how to commission your own and order prints from selected paintings.
