EXHIBITION: Olga Miliaresi-Foka, Ilias Papailiakis and Serapis at Dio Horia Gallery
A younger generation of artists meets one of Greece’s true master painters at Mykonos-based Dio Horia, as the gallery kicks off the new season with three separate shows on Panahra Square in Chora.

To kick off the 2016 season, Mykonos-based art platform and gallery Dio Horia presents three separate exhibitions of contemporary art inspired by or commenting upon present-day Greece. On the ground floor, the solo show 'Sin City' by Athens-based artist Olga Miliaresi-Foka (b.1981) is a play with the visual language of advertisement, pushing well-known corporate logos into the realm of the absurd.

In Studio B on the upper floor, a solo exhibition by seasoned Greek painter Ilias Papailiakis (b.1970) reflects upon the history of the nearby island of Delos, featuring canvases by one of Greece’s true master painters. Another solo exhibition is hosted in Studio A on the same floor, with works by Piraeus-based art collective Serapis; whimsically calling themselves a shipping company, the artists at Serapis create digital prints and fashion inspired by contemporary Greek seafaring culture and imagery.
