Jannis Psychopedis: Heroes of '21


Jannis Psychopedis’ exhibition entitled “Figures of ‘21” includes paintings, engravings and drawings.

17 July, 2021 to 31 October, 2021

It represents the artist’s most recent work, created during the long months of the lock-down, inspired by thoughts and contemplation triggered and brought creatively into being by the two-hundred-year anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821. This exhibition by Psychopedis provides, through a wealth of diverse techniques, the very first view of a unique visual gallery of portraits of the fighters of 1821.

Alongside the series of paintings and engravings under the title “Fighters of ‘21”, the exhibition also includes works predating the anniversary, as well as drawings and compositions on the subject of Lord Byron, the Philhellenes and the members of the Filiki Eteria (Society of Friends).

His paint brush, his chisel and his pencil painted, etched and drew the figures of ’21 and usher the personalities of the past into the present day, through bold, bright colours and through the severity that the black-and-white print of the woodcut lends the image.
