The exhibition is curated by Eleni Kalliga and Iris Kritikou.
A rare coexistence of notable old and modern Naive artworks, which invites the viewer into a refreshing and impromptu journey of events and colours. The exhibition also highlights the historical and artistic value of a timeless and global visual arts current with precious representatives in Greece.
The exhibition showcases works by significant historical and contemporary Greek Naive art representatives, some self-taught but extremely talented and others, with many years of arts education and a long career, that have chosen this original form of expression for the whole body or for a part of their work.
The works presented at Skoufa Gallery focus on Greek history, mythology, shadow theatre, as well as tradition and daily life in the city and countryside: mythological scenes and Greek adventures of bravery, traditional festivals and agricultural tasks, portraits, romantic urban memories, idyllic landscapes and seascapes, represented with spontaneous figurative and narrative eloquence, creating a colorful and pulsating panorama with equal historical, folkloric, and contemporary aesthetic value.
