Just as Christ defeats death and is resurrected, nature is </p><p>reborn when winter gives way to spring and hardship succumbs to plenitude.</p><p>in Greece, symbolism, religious and otherwise, go hand in hand with </p><p>practicality and real life. Karolos Koun, arguably the greatest man in Greek </p><p>theater, was well acquainted with this fact. he was responsible for the revival </p><p>and establishment theater of the art in its current form. Through exhaustive </p><p>work with his actors, he awakened the symbolism of Ancient drama and </p><p>presented works that astounded audiences and critics alike, as they were able </p><p>to identify aspects of real life in his interpretation of theatrical plays.</p><p>German director fatih Akin, who has Turkish roots, is also able to skillfully </p><p>combine symbolism and reality. This time, however, he chose a straightforward </p><p>manner to depict a sensitive issue for his fellow countrymen: the Armenian </p><p>genocide. The Cut could almost be defined as a documentary, and the </p><p>director spoke to us in depth about the film and the relationship between the </p><p>Greeks and Turks, which is much better than many believe it to be. </p><p>in addition to symbolism, people also need heroes. And when things get </p><p>really difficult, they need superheroes. We sought out the best comic book </p><p>shops in the city, which are flourishing again thanks to the cinema. What does </p><p>it matter that they are made of paper? They are an invaluable escape from </p><p>everyday life sought after by people of all ages.</p><p>This issue also features interviews with Panagiotis Tetsis, one of the most </p><p>important contemporary greek artists, and talented actors, Zeta Douka and </p><p>Christos loulis, all of whom discuss their unique form of artistic expression. </p><p>We are proud to have welcomed them to the hilton Athens and to have had </p><p>the opportunity to hear about their interesting plans for the future.</p><p> . -</p><p> , </p><p> . , -</p><p> .</p><p> , , , </p><p> , . </p><p> , </p><p> , -</p><p> . </p><p> , </p><p> , -</p><p> .</p><p>. , , -</p><p> , -</p><p>. , </p><p> , -</p><p> , , .</p><p> , . </p><p> , -</p><p>. , </p><p> , . -</p><p>; </p><p> .</p><p> , </p><p>, </p><p> , </p><p> . -</p><p> hilton -</p><p> .</p><p>T</p><p>Athens: Voukourestiou 21, tel.2103628003 Mykonos: Tria Pigadia, tel.2289022922info@fmathens.com</p><p>www.kassis.net</p><p>Also available at Boutiques in Athens</p></li><li><p>athens hilton 2928 hilton athens</p><p> 2015, </p><p> , . : </p><p>. 2010-2014 </p><p>&amp; . , 27 -</p><p> , -</p><p> . , </p><p> , .</p><p> 1925. -</p><p> 1940 Klaus frislander, </p><p> -</p><p>-. 14 1939 -</p><p> , </p><p> . </p><p> . -</p><p> . </p><p> . </p><p>. , , </p><p> . , -</p><p> -. </p><p> . . </p><p> , .</p><p> '30 -</p><p> . , -</p><p> , . -</p><p> , -</p><p> .</p><p>ThE P TETSIS: LANDSCAPES (2010-2014) ExhIbITIoN opens in May 2015 </p><p>at the b &amp; M Theocharakis foundation for the fine Arts and Music. The artist will </p><p>be premiering 27 of his newest monumental paintings, which reveal the strength </p><p>of his personal post-impressionistic seascape tradition and artistic conquests. </p><p>These imaginative works, which mainly depict scenes from the islands of hydra </p><p>and the "Santorini" landscape, are in oil and india ink.</p><p>Panagiotis Tetsis was born on hydra in 1925. he studied painting in 1940 under </p><p>Klaus fislander, and his career path was later greatly influenced by his meetings </p><p>with Dimitris Pikionis, a major Greek architect and nikos hadjikyriakos-Ghikas, a </p><p>leading Greek painter. "i was 14 years old in 1939, and because hydra did not have </p><p>a secondary school, i was forced to leave the island and go to Piraeus to attend </p><p>classes. i returned to hydra every summer, leaving some of my paintings with my </p><p>grandmother. There was a small church next to her house and my grandmother </p><p>was given access so she could light the candle and clean it. One day, a gentleman </p><p>asked her if she had the key, as he wanted to see the church. She realized that </p><p>he had something to do with painting and showed him my work. Afterwards, </p><p>he told her he would be back that afternoon with hadjikyriakos to meet me. To </p><p>make a long story short, the two men were Pikionis and hadjikyriakos-Ghikas. </p><p>They had high praise for my work. That was how it all began. A kind word is </p><p>enough to encourage you to start taking an idea seriously", recounts the artist.</p><p>Tetsis and color are inextricably linked and this symbiotic relationship is reflected </p><p>in his personality. he is perhaps the only Greek painter born in the '30s to capture </p><p>life with such vibrant colors. Other painters of his generation were influenced by </p><p>the bavarian School and didn't express themselves with bright colors. Tetsis, on </p><p>the other hand, was influenced by the Greek reality and the strong Greek light.</p><p>Takis Mavrotas, the curator of the exhibition and director of the visual arts </p><p>Greek LiGht</p><p>T</p><p> , , kai . </p><p>Panagiotis tetsis, one of the most imPortant contemPorary greek artists, who caPtures the beauty of the greek landscaPe in his Paintings, is Presenting his most recent works in athens this may. by alexandros oikonomou </p><p>o o o. / panagiotis tetsis at work.</p></li><li><p>30 hilton athens</p><p> &amp; , , </p><p>: , 2010-2014, </p><p> -</p><p> , </p><p> . , , </p><p> . -</p><p> . </p><p> , </p><p>. , -</p><p> . </p><p> , </p><p> , -</p><p> -</p><p> . </p><p> , -</p><p> . , -</p><p>, </p><p> . </p><p> , -</p><p> .</p><p> : </p><p> &amp; , </p><p> 9 &amp; 1, , .: 210 361 1206, www.thf.gr</p><p>program of the b &amp; M Theocharakis foundation, describes the artist and his </p><p>works: "With his recent work (2010-2014), Tetsis continues to integrate his </p><p>skill and sensitivity, and his focus is to produce paintings featuring the staggering, </p><p>harsh yet redemptive Greek light. Once again, the Saronic Gulf and hydra form </p><p>the spark for his creativity. These landscapes fill his soul and bring tension to </p><p>his paintings. he always begins with a rough sketch on the blank white canvas, </p><p>a memory and the spirit of freedom in his approach to realizing his vision. An </p><p>experienced mystic of the arts, he dares to fluctuate between vibrant colours </p><p>and the contemplative silence of black. he often uses warm ochres and all shades </p><p>of gray - with a strong tendency towards simplicity, emphasizing the contrast </p><p>between the freedom of his gestural expression and the deeply intense colors </p><p>he favors. he is passionately dedicated to the aesthetic harmony of the painting </p><p>and his colors retain their brightness, liveliness and authenticity. The verve of </p><p>his brush strokes, the embossed texture, and the kinetic luminosity reveal the </p><p>underlying strength of his work and draw the eye of viewers to the boldness of </p><p>his brush and powerful tones.
