Event alert for Melbourne readers!  Remember my story and interview with the fabulous Artist George Raftopoulos?  George is showing at The Hellenic Museum in William Street and has a special event on Sunday afternoon with fellow Artist, Michelle Mantsio.  Details below.

Hour with the Artists: George Raftopoulos and Michelle Mantsio

Sunday afternoon Hour with the Artists.

If you are in Melbourne, please make the time to go along!

Artist George Raftopoulos discusses the processes and inspirations behind his latest works alongside fellow artist Michelle Mantsio.

“George Raftopoulos’ predominantly autobiographical paintings reach for universal themes of hope, longing, fear, love and desire. With a strong sense of colour regardless of pigment, and applying elements of collage in exploration of the portrait, the works examine the longstanding depths and layers of mythology in society.”
