Three emerging painters and friends lived and worked together in a former garage, owned and offered to them -for nearly two years- by the Art collector Giorgos Vogiatzoglou. As a result of their collaboration, three solo shows came up. It was called "Building 1 (Ktirio 1) (ktirioena.com) and held in the Vogiatzoglou Gallery in Athens (vogiatzogloucollection.gr), from February 5 to April 4, 2015.
The writer Auguste Corteau marks in the catalogue of the exhibition:
(...) "How we envy the painter, those of us who struggle with the written word!
They do not even need the whole picture – a mere dab, a touch of the brush on the
canvas, (the glint of an eye, the flutter of a bird taking wing) can contain more
beauty and emotive power than a thousand pages of scribblings.
And especially when it comes to painters as sublimely gifted as Achilleas Pistonis,
Vassilis Selimas and Antonis Tsakiris, it is an indescribable honor and joy for a writer to
introduce, with his meager means, this meeting of their work."
"Grenade Artworks" is a fictional logo.
Includes a home made cover of Mr. Leonard Cohen 's song "Chelsea Hotel #2", by Antonis Tsakiris.
