This thing called art...

It's all about the art we have inside us, the things we perceive as being art, the places we travel through art... It's all about artistic intelligence and artistic nonsense, for that matter!

Auction: Wall Street can't touch Art...

New York Times called it a "bull market" and was just that... the day after Wall Street tanked, Sotheby's of London had a record auction of over $200.7 million in sales, for 223 works by artist Damien Hirst. This has been a record auction for a single artist, since a Picasso sale of 88 works in 1993 that reached $20 million. Sotheby's high estimate for the auction was $177.6 million, but art works like the "Fragment of Paradise" was sold for $9.3 million... three times more than its high estimate of $2.9 million. And to top things up, the highest bid of the two-day event went to "The Golden Calf" for $18.6 million... Looks like art weathers the storm no matter what...

Innovation: Cruising Art...

One last bit of art summer dreaming before the season fades... Jeff Koon's greatest work to date now is undeniably a yacht, named "Guilty". The concept is based on the dazzle patterns used on warships during WW1. The yacht, owned by major Greek art collector Dakis Joannou and architecturally designed by Ivana Porfiri, brings to art a novelty like no other... Read more here.

Exhibition: Art to feel proud of...

Greek contemporary artists are showcasing their love for their country's best asset... it's Sea! In the greek island of Poros, the picturesque gallery CITRONne is exhibiting the blue that each of these artists have in them. Among them is Maria Filopoulou with  her infamous "Swimmers",which after exhibitions in London, Paris and New York, they finally found their way home. Tasos Matzavinos, a true Greek, gives a darker note on his interpretation of Greece's heritage and focuses more on the traditional aspect that goes with it. Kostas Papanikolaou celebrates its light... its power of colour... un voyage dans le passe... while Nana Vetta uses waves to travel back to memory lane... The gallery is situated on a beautiful building of the 18th century on the promenade of the island. Even though it just had its one year anniversary, it has already gained an international momentum and loyal destination-art- travelers thanks to its Founder, Director and Art Historian Tatiana Spinari-Pollalis.
