Contemporary Art Exhibition in Athens

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    “Narrating” the story of one of Greece’s most important contemporary painters, Dimitris Mytaras, the B & M Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts and Music hosts an exhibition titled “Dimitris Mytaras, Narrating forms” which will be running through November 20.  Selective and representative large-scale paintings, dating from 1964 to 2008, reveal important aspects of Mytaras artistic evolution. His work expresses a circle of painful pursuits, revealing that the end might be hiding the starting point of everything. Thus, time functions as an endless compass, linking past to present.  Born in 1934, Mytaras’work is mainly inspired by the human figure, and a combination of naturalism and expressionism. In 2004, Mytaras was selected to create one of the official posters for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.  Athens Contemporary Art Map: www.athensartmap.net; National Museum of Contemporary Art: www.emst.gr; State Museum of Contemporary Art: www.greekstatemuseum.com  Secretariat General of Information: About Greece-Tracing the Artistic and Cultural Map in Contemporary Greece
