The well known Greek artist Yannis Stavrou offer us an artistic journey to Athens, Attica, Greece.The magic nights on Acropolis, the transparent atmosphere of Attica, the historic places of Monastiraki and Academia, the olive groves, the mysterious ships in Piraeus port, the famous Hydra island...

Greece in colours...The Greek landscape presents always a unique challenge to Greek painters, artists.

"Introspective and romantic in their disposition, Stavrou paintings, though dealing with landscape, break free from naturalistic Acropolis - Athens,, oil on canvas renditions. The absence or discrete - often unnoticeable - presence of human figures, a ghost - like Parthenon as if standing in mid - air in defiance of the law of gravity and the all - engulfing, cathartic, tranquility permeating Stavrou's atmospheric compositions are often invested with metaphysical air transcending the barriers of time and space..." Christy Papadopoulou, "Athens News" newspaper.
