A very summer painting exhibition in Milos
Four friends sharing the same passion for art, namely painting, decided to join forces. Or better yet, present their group work to the public.
The result of this partnership is the “Refraction of Light” exhibition, which will be hosted on the island of Milos in July.
Behind the cliché “history is written by friends”, there is a great truth: People who share common loves and interests can accomplish a lot if they come together. Something similar happened to four friends – all artists. Ismini Micha, Io Pappas, Petros Mallis and Anest Haderi worked feverishly in their studios all winter. Individually, alone but with the same goal. Despite the difficult conditions and the bans imposed by the pandemic. Now they are all ready to exhibit their works together.
Their inspiration, common: The colors and the light, the sea, the beauties of this world, but also the Aphrodite of Milos. In the picturesque island of the Cyclades, their group exhibition will take place, as one of the group members, Petros Mallis, lives there.
