Event Description

The Fotis Art Cafe and the Medusa Art Gallery met twelve years ago! Since then they have been travelling together in time, aiming to lure you along the way... So again this year, starting on Holy Monday before Easter, Sophia Aliberti and Maria Demetriades invite you on a journey of colours through the works of Costas Tsiknis!

“With his latest works Costas Tsiknis takes us on a sonorous journey to a spectacular garden filled with birds and three green frogs-former princes. His singing birds escape their explosively coloured boxes, appear three-dimensional in cages with open doors, twitter on demand and celebrate their freedom in a relaxed mood of joy and euphoria. Exploring the pop aesthetic to the threshold between real and artificial, the strange troupe of these charming creatures is incessantly reproduced in small-scale mirages and joyfully winks at the viewer”.

Olga Papakosta

Costas Tsiknis was born in 1961 in Amfissa, where he lives and works. A self-taught artist, he has been practising painting since 1999.
