One of the best ways to see great art for free in Athens is to do a gallery walk. You can walk from gallery to gallery checking out some of the best Greek and international art without paying an entrance fee.
One of our faves is Titanium, the Yiayiannos Gallery (Vasilissis Konstantinou Street 44, phone: +30-210-7297-644, fax: +30-210-7251-063), located opposite the infamous Truman Statue. It is open Tuesday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Titanium Yiayiannos Gallery exhibits incredibly innovative art (of various media) by both local and international artists. Recently, the gallery hosted an exhibit of the Swiss artist Sandy Kopitopoulos (see above) that left us in awe.
Through June 2, 2007, the thought-provoking paintings of Haralampos Katsatsidis will be on display.
