Today started the 8th BAZART. Twenty-five artists present their work, some for the first time. Artists participating in this year exhibition are from Greece and from abroad. They cover a wide range of artistic expression that starts from the traditional painting and reaches to applied arts, including projects that define the beginning of the relationship of art as vital and necessary.

The pieces of art are paintings, sculptures, photographs, jewelry, decorative objects and even clothes.
Some artists caught my eye and I catched their work with my camera.

Pericles Kondylatos' work we had just seen during the City Fashion & Fusion exhibition (see previous post) and now he takes part with some of the following pieces of art.

He studied fine arts at the Surrey institute of Art & Design and did his masters at Camberwell College of Arts in London.
His artistic expression is the starting point for painting, but talks with the construction sculpture and photography. Without obeying the "restriction" of the canvas extends the work on projects that impress both the specific use of color and the unexpected forms.

Kyveli Vezani was born in Athens in 1982. She studied cognitive science at Yale University and interactive telecommunications at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
She lives and works in Athens, where she started a line of handmade bags and jewelry called Knock, which refers to the expression “knock on wood”.

Yianna Karvela designs and manufactures jewelry of metals such as titanium, brass, copper and silver. Forms are sometimes abstract, sometimes linear, sometimes robust and others with a sense of humor, always imaginative and unique.

Ioanna Koulouri is a jewelry and accessories designer for "meet the cat". A concept store in Xalandri, aiming to present and highlight new emerging Greek clothing and accessories designers.
She studied Statistics and Insurance Science at the University of Piraeus, while attending several sessions in applied arts. After graduating she worked in advertising until 2005 when she decided to change career path and founded her own company "meet the cat".
I loved the way she used an essential piece of clothing, the zipper in an inspiring way.

Panos Apergis is a fashion designer and known for his costumes for cinema and television. His designs are presented at this BAZART. The photos of the fashion show are from Fashion Week Athens fall/winter 2010/2011.

And so many more artists to mention, if you like to see them all pay a visit to the exhibition and get an impression by yourself. The information of the artists I got from www.m-art.gr/space. For more information and of the other artists visit their website.
