Collections by Kampanis, Markos:


Born in Athens in1955. He studied painting at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London, where he lived until 1980. During 1983 he lived for several months in Florence, painting the landscape and studying the museums of Italy.

He mainly works as a painter, printmaker, book illustrator and church muralist, while in the past he occasionally worked as a stage designer.

He has had more than 15 own man shows in galleries in Athens and London, has has been participating often in Art-Athina fairs and in numerous group shows in Greece and abroad. In 1984, his work was shown at the15th Biennale of Alexandria, Egypt.

Much of his work is related to Mt Athos-by painting the Athonite landscape, by organizing a print-making studio there and by accepting commissions to execute artistic works in situ. Being a keen muralist he has done work for several churches, among others for the Mount Sinai monastery. During 2010, a retrospective of his Athonite works (1990-2008) was presented at the Byzantine Museum in Athens, while his latest exhibition at the Athens Art Gallery (Dec2011), was entitled “A Museum of Trees” and dealt with the way trees have been presented throughout the History of Art and the way seemingly different styles or civilizations might relate to each other.
