From Expressionism to Graffiti

May 10, 2010

Talk by ethnologist and UNESCO research associate, Nikos Papageorgiou...

Graffiti in Exarheia area

In cooperation with the Hellenic Folklore Research Centre of the Academy of Athens, the Hellenic American Union presents a talk by ethnologist Nikos Papageorgiou entitled From Expressionism to Street Art: Murals – Graffiti.

Until 1912, art theorists were using the term Expressionism to describe Modern Art in Europe during that period. This term inspired many artists, as the movement began as a kind of revolution against Classic Art, in favor of a liberation of the soul.

From Picasso, Gauguin and Matisse to contemporary artists who express themselves through multicolored and expressionist graffiti on the city’s walls, the distance is not great. Nikos Papageorgiou’s talk connects the common characteristics and the historical continuity of art movements up until our days.
