About

The Hellenic American Union presents a retrospective exhibition of the great Greek painter, Yiannis Psychopaidis, exclusively with "artist's books", which he created during his career (1979-2023) curated by Louiza Karapidakis.


Yiannis Psychopaidis is one of the first Greek artists who presented artist's books in Greece, Germany, Belgium and Italy. Along with his vast artistic journey and the illustration of a large number of literary and poetic works that are released in special editions of a limited number of copies, Yiannis Psychopaidis was also inspired by the structure of leporellos. The leporellos lend themselves to an extended narrative narration, to develop pictorially his favorite themes. On these surfaces he integrates with his visual interventions considerations, opinions, doubts and other associations of his critical thinking on social and political issues. He also creates a large number of polymorphic works-books, which have never been presented to the public.

The curator of the exhibition, Louiza Karapidaki, notes about the exhibition: "Artist's books are a category of art, an autonomous genre and above all another form of artistic expression and visual experimentation, such as performances or visual installations. An artist's book is a a work of visual art and at the same time a collector's item with the sole creator of the artist himself, in contrast to an art book, an illustrated book, a bibliophile publication or an art book, where the creators can be many people of different specialties, the artist, the writer, the the poet, the bookbinder, the graphic designer, the typographer, etc. The characteristics of Psychopaides' painting manner remain unchanged in the artist's books with the organized realistic references of a fragmentary performance alluding to an idiosyncratic spirituality with meditative overtones".
