On 16th July, 2019, I visited Kyriakos Rokos art exhibition in Corfu. This was held in the Municipal Art Gallery housed in the Palace of St Michael and St George in Corfu Town.
Kyriakos Rokos is an award-winning Greek artist who works mainly in bronze, marble and wood as well as drawing in ink and pencil.
The artworks were all very abstract, but this made the exhibition more interesting and some of the artworks needed to be looked at carefully in order to understand what is going on in them.
All of the artworks were very good and the artist produced works in lots of different styles. You can also see that the artist has been inspired by other art which can be seen in his version of Vermeer’s girl with a pearl earring.
There wasn’t really anything to criticize about the exhibition and I really enjoyed going to see it.
I would definitely recommend going to this exhibition as it is in such a nice location and has been curated very well.
This exhibition has inspired me to create some of my own abstract artworks in a similar way to Rokos.
