Sofoklis Koutris "Apokries and every day life"

Natasa Govedarou, visual artist, curator and owner of Govedarou Art Gallery, organizes the solo exhibition of the well-known and former painter Sophocles Koutris entitled "Apokries and Everyday Life" at the gallery space at G.Papandreou 5. A special exhibition mainly about Greek Halloween , but also some of his latest creations which starts on Thursday, February 22nd and will last until March 7th.

Sofokles Koutris graduated from the Athens School of Fine Arts in 1964. He has been awarded for composition in color copper engraving, composition in copper engraving and nude in copper engraving. This is a visual artist who served the art non-stop and taught it in universities and colleges for many decades. In the works that will be presented in his solo exhibition mainly on the theme of Greek Halloween, there is a strong element of movement and bright colors. The emotion and happy mood that the carnival-goers feel over the frenzy of revelry is reflected on their faces. Spaniels, harlequins, lampshade costumes, pavilions, butterflies, pirates and Chinese girls join the parade and the carnival begins with the carnival driver "opening" the way!
