Clio Muse in the Visual World of G. Zongolopoulos

Attempting to present the artist G. Zongolopoulos to the public can prove a tricky task. You see, as I begin to write this article, I realize once more that his work doesn’t require many introductions. Quite on the contrary, like all great artists, he expresses himself through a unique and stunningly honest visual language. After all, art is defined by simplicity, integrity, genuine imagination, and, of course, a desire to share stories.

The illustrious “Umbrellas” in the coastline of Τhessaloniki, are an Instagram heaven flooding our feed while urging us to use our imagination and marvel at a stunning artwork, perfectly integrated into its surroundings.

Thus, it’s more than a great pleasure for us to launch our new collaboration with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, which is organizing its first exhibition exclusively dedicated to public sculptures installed by the iconic artist.
