Babushka Artworks @ AMSTERDAM


A new set of hand-drawn Babushkas will be displayed at the group show CheapArt Amsterdam at Loods 6 building in the East Harbour District in Amsterdam on Saturday 6 to 14 October 2012.

The Babushkas is an ongoing project that consists of unique works illustrated directly on canvas with marker-pens and involves the iconic image of the Russian doll Matryoshka.
Following the attention the project received on my previous participation at the CheapArt 17 show (last December), I felt energised to continue creating more works and much adorable (only hoping!!) female characters! You can be reminded of the creating process here. Hope you will enjoy them! See them all here.



P.S  I will really really appreciate if any of you that would be visiting the show are so kind to take a few shots of my work and email them to me, so I could post them here on my blog.

Towel Alphabet


A side project inspired by LetterCult AlphaBattle, an idea to make custom letters among some like-minded peers and have fun!

I have to confess that at first I though about contributing only one letter, just because I liked the concept and wanted to make something. A very simple idea, that of a tea towel, came to mind as I saw a striped towel before me whilst thinking what to illustrate. So, I made the first letter (A) and then I thought: why not make another? In the process I began to think a series of towel letters and got excited by the idea of creating the entire alphabet!!

Thanassis Exarchopoulos: Prints and Books

For the last two months, MIET Foundation presented at the Eynard Mansion in Athens the exhibition in recognition of Thanassis Exarchopoulos outstanding work Thanassis Exarchopoulos: Prints and Books. The show featured more than 70 engravings, representative of the artist's visual searches, which cover only part of his artistic work. Etched most in linoleum and printed by himself, they were accompanied by a number of projects processed and printed digitally.
This was a rare event for the audience to see his work, so today, which was the last day of the exhibition, I seized the opportunity to visit it once again, and I'm glad I remembered to take my camera with me this time!!








Mini Bio:
Thanassis Exarchopoulos, born in Pyrgos Ilias, Greece, 1927. He studied printmaking at the Athens School of Fine Arts during 1947 to 1951.  In 1982 he was elected Professor of Printmaking at the same school where he taught until 1994. Along with printmaking and academic work, which never ceased to concern him- has focused on the applied design and graphic art.
