“Terre des hommes”
Zoumboulakis Galleries proudly presents on Thursday 24 September the new exhibition of paintings by Yiannis Adamakis.
“Terre des hommes”, the autobiographical book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is the incentive for the artist’s latest work.
The exhibition is not an illustration, born while reading “land of men”. It is a dialogue, a communion, leading to the enactment of the painter’s personal icons. It is actually his own trip within the world.
The connection between the airplane and the pilot, its technical as well as aesthetical evolution, the point of view from above, the memories, the stories of men and the land, provide the resultants for this journey.
