Temporary exhibition of XChristakos in Rethymno Crete!

Villa Maroulas present in the House of Culture in Rethymno an amazing exhibition of Xchristakos artist painter, from 07th to 13d of January 2016. Little people of XChristakos wink at us, blank faces deprived of any individuality thus expressionless, but at the same time rather loquacious.The slightest differentiation on the slump of the shoulders, a hand moving differently, randomly placed creases in the suit and the uniformity is gone. We will wait for you in this art gallery in Rethymno for varnishing on the 07th of January 2016. We will organize also a private sale in our villa in the village of Maroulas soon.
