"Greece is the one that, with "her" Spirit and the Arts, permeated the entire body of developed forms of Human Culture. Stamped all forms of science with "her" unparalleled Spirit, expressing fine meanings of philosophy and sciences, specifying broad concepts of political discourse and state laws, complex concepts of the gospels and the theology of the Fathers, deep meanings of thought of the ancient drama, of prose, of poetry.I admit that the hearth of the whole world is found in hospitable Greece then and now... Respect "Her"!" writes international Greek model Paraskevas Boubourakas in his new webpage promoting his personal project.
Vivienne Westwood, Umit Benan, Bernard Willhelm and many more stars of the international fashion industry pose with a t-shirt that worships the history, the cultural heritage of Greece and an ideal that is more contemporary than ever.
I hope and strongly believe that this effort of Paraskevas will gain the global reach it deserves. Congrats, I am really impressed.

Contemporary global societies are managed through graphs, numbers and scores. This is the conclusion that Guy Limone has come to, working the past 25 years with miniatures. In his third exhibition in Athens, entitled Kaos the French artist composed his new works by tiny plastic figures that do not exceed two centimeters and are adjusted into a wall or other surfaces such as ceramics, aluminum rods, fishing lines etc. These figures are directly derived from the ancient Greek art. "Ancient Greek sculptors were exacerbated the human form to a point that exceeded the natural range contary my figures are shrunk to the point of extinction" comments the artist.The exhibition is opening this Thursday at Rebecca Camhi Art Space.
