Yanni Gallery in Athens
A family-run boutique gallery with unique Greek sculptures, paintings, prints and jewelry by artist Yanni Souvatzoglou, an abstract impressionist. Since 1980, Yanni has been creating art pieces inspired by traditional Cycladic sculpture using elongated human figures to create modern-day anthropocentric designs; his work poses philosophical questions while at the same time providing answers. If you find yourself on Leoforo Marathonas Avenue heading from Athens to the port town of Rafina, Yanni’s artwork is displayed around the 28km mark – large sculpture of a runner dedicated to the town of Marathon.
An inspiring and experimental artist using a variety of materials from ceramics to metals, Yanni Souvatzoglou has also been influenced by Greek mythology and how these iconic stories translate into today’s society. Every piece of art he’s made tells a story, and he’s more than happy to sit and talk about his concepts and ideas. Yanni’s gallery acts not only as a shop and showplace, but also as as a meeting spot in the Athens cultural and philosophical scene with his artwork providing “food for thought” and discussion.
The gallery offers packaging and shipping after purchase, including internationally. Open Monday to Saturday 12pm to 6pm; closed Sundays. Centrally located in Plaka, beside Evgenia Restaurant and Electra Palace Hotel. The closest metro station to the gallery is Syntagma, about a 350 meter walk away.
