Local visual artists

Poros, Troizinia and Methana are areas that were loved by artists. The local area has for many years been a source of inspiration for people of the arts. Parthenis and Ebeirikos are only some of the artists that used to retreat to these serene parts seeking inspiration. The area, however, hasn’t only harbored artists, it has given birth to many as well. As time goes by, local visual artists increase, and their artistic wealth can hardly leave you indifferent. There are artists that are professionally involved with their art, and others that keep it for their personal moments. They all, however, create gems that catch the eye.

As Katheti, we want to highlight the work and potentially create a network of the local artists, so we tried to document them, starting with visual artists. Below, you will find a list of artists that live in or come from the area, as well as links to their websites or to articles where you can find more about them and their work. The list is in alphabetical order and will be constantly enriched.
