The exhibition is organised on the occasion of the 80th anniversary from the birth and 25 years from the passing of the Greek artist, Alexis Akrithakis.

The exhibition is the first systematic presentation of Alexis Akrithakis’ work devoted exclusively to one of his most recognisable techniques, the “tsiki-tsiki”, as writer Kostas Tachtsis named it in the mid sixties.

The exhibition features a significant part of his “tsiki-tsiki” works created from the mid 60s to the early 70s and projects that will be of particular importance for the creation, development and differentiation of his characteristic style from the beginning and throughout his career.
