New Exhibition at AthenStyle

by Mario Malapetsas and Antonis Kroustis

EXHIBITION

“The objective of this exhibition is a more internal glance into the person, the colours that come out from them, but also the energy of landscape.
In certain times the form is lost and breaks, in order to enter in her place light, colour or something else that will stress more a lot the sentiment despite the obvious.
Something exists that we want to express jointly and that is the need for a more internal glance into the hidden energy of a person and landscape”


MARIO MALAPETSAS

“I studied photography many years ago but I have never worked as a professional photographer, which does not mean that the quality of our work is not professional. I have worked as a driving instructor for living until now but my great love is the art. These photos are from different periods of my life and they have different style. But all of them are portraits of people and places which were very close to my soul. The most recent photos are the coloured <red>

photos.is a project I am still working on it. It’s about the dead end of human life. The most appropriate title for my photos I would say that is “HUMAN TOUCH”


ANTONIS KROUSTIS

His education is graphic designer and also, he studied photography for two years.He works as a computers ecdl teacher and in his free time he works on portraits and professional photography.
He prefers to study the human face and the energy around it. The energy of the body and on the woman’s face. Although the aim now is to find the exact colours to present that energy, he presents some other old pictures”

We are famous!!

The Spanish Tv Program “Callejeros Viajeros” was on AthenStyle rooftop bar drinking Rakomelo.
Rakomelo (Greek: ρακόμελο; from raki (alcoholic licour) + meli (honey) is traditional alcoholic winter drink with honey and several spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom, or other regional herbs.
In the winter time, we get warm drinking it near the fireplace enjoying the Acropolis and Greek Agora views from the roof!

Exhibition and sale of jewellery

Creations by Chrisoula Karemfilaki

Cheap and beauty

Thursday 18 & Saturday 20

h 18.00 – 22.00

AthenStyle Lounge Area & Bar


Chrisoula Karemfilaki.

I was born in Athens 23 years before. Although I study psychology at panteion university, art remains the thing i love the most. Photography and painting have been the steady poles of interest and ways of expression and personal pursuit in my life for several years. I would say that jewellery simply happened naturally 3 years ago…I have never thought about it until then and the truth is that i liked and i was satisfied by this way of expression and the whole inspiration and energy that came out of me. I work mostly with copper and photographies(from movies, cartoon, art paintings,…) that i love making earings, necklaces, bracelets and also rings with semi-precious stones, buttons and other materials. The main idea is “i can wear something that i love and represents me… “

Necklace

Brooch

Rings

Earrings
