“Fotodiodos 2001-2011”

The solo painting exhibition of Alexandros M. Valvis, titled “Fotodiodos 2001-2011”, will be launched at the Cultural Center Megaro Gyzi on Sunday 28th August.

Fotodiodos is the bridge to meet again with art as the code, which creates the truth as an image and the reflected image becomes reality.

The artist returns to the island of his origin after a 18-year stay in Germany and presents for the first time in Santorini his work of the last ten years. He is going to exhibit paintings with mixed technique (acrylics, natural materials, resin on wood), but also some drawings (chalk & charcoal on paper Ingres).

The exhibition is organized and curated by Yannis Papaconstantinou, Artistic Director of Megaro Gyzi. 

Opening of exhibition: Sunday 28th August 2011, 21:00
Duration of exhibition: 28 August - 24 September 2011
