the work of a lifetime

this is old news but today i finally managed to see Yannis Tsarouchis 1910-1989 exhibition at Benaki Museum and it was b e a u t i f u l, two floors dedicated to his immense work of life.
The different thing about him is that he wasn’t just a painter but a multifarious intellectual that painted, wrote poems, worked for theater and cinema and contributed to the culture of a century, oscillating between east and west and transforming this blend of cultural elements into art.

you’ve all seen his famous sailors and bicyclists..

..but i half secretly took a shot of this hand-drawn fan that dedicated to actress Katina Paksinou..

..and of this cute little set design model for Debussy’s music composition

To those of you last minute visitors i ‘d suggest to hurry up, the exhibition ends on the 14th of March.
