Η Τέχνη και ο Πολιτισμός επλήγησαν όπως τόσοι άλλοι τομείς της ζωής και της οικονομίας αλλά δεν πρέπει να παραγνωρίζουμε το γεγονός ότι για τους καλλιτέχνες ιστορικά οι προκλήσεις και η διαχείριση οριακών καταστάσεων έπαιζαν σημαντικό ρόλο τόσο στη δημιουργία αυτή καθαυτή, όσο και στη γέννηση νέων δρόμων. Δεν πρέπει όμως να παραγνωρίζουμε τον ιδιαίτερο ψυχισμό των καλλιτεχνών που άλλες φορές τους βοηθά να θεραπεύσουν και να αντιμετωπίσουν τις πληγές τους μέσα από τα έργα τους και άλλες που τους δοκιμάζει σε επίπεδα πέραν των αντοχών τους με τραγικές συνέπειες.

Ο πανικός που σκόρπισε η πανδημία λόγω της αιφνίδιας παύσης των εκθέσεων και του κλεισίματος όλων των χώρων Τέχνης προκάλεσε τεράστια αμηχανία. Θα θυμάμαι πάντα τις πολύωρες συζητήσεις μου με τους καλλιτέχνες μας διότι η οπτική αλλά και η προοπτική που μου πρόσφεραν ήταν κάτι που δεν θα μπορούσε να μου δώσει κανένας δημοσιογράφος, πολιτικός, λοιμωξιολόγος ή ειδικός.. Απολαμβάνοντας τις βαθυστόχαστες αναλύσεις τους αφουγκραζόμουν την κοινή αγωνα και λαχτάρα τους μαζί που θα μπορούσα να συνοψίσω στη προσμονή για τη δημιουργία εκείνης της τέχνης που θα διηγηθεί την ασύλληπτη δοκιμασία της ανθρωπότητας και που θα τη βοηθήσει να σταθεί και πάλι στα πόδια της. Όπως οι καλλιτέχνες συνέχιζαν να δημιουργούν κατά τη διάρκεια του A' παγκοσμίου πολέμου έτσι ακριβώς έκαναν και εν μέσω της πανδημίας. Ενδεικτικά αναφέρω τη γλύπτρια Ράνια Σχορετσανίτη που επλήγη και από τον πρόσφατο σεισμό της Ελασσώνας και συνέχισε να δημιουργεί εν μέσω ρίχτερ, ή τη διεθνή γλύπτρια Vassiliki που με την απαγόρευση της ανθρώπινης εγγύτητας την είδα να φτιάχνει άδειες αγκαλιές, ή την Brigitte Polemis που βιώνει την πανδημία ως ευκαιρία και ήδη ολοκλήρωσε τη νέα σειρά έργων της.




Η μεγάλη έκπληξη λοιπόν δεν ήρθε από τους καλλιτέχνες αλλά από το κοινό το οποίο απάντησε στην πανδημία με εξίσου δημιουργικό τρόπο επιλέγοντας να εμπλουτίσουν τις ζωές τους μέσα από την απόκτηση έργων τέχνης, να δώσουν μια νέα διάσταση στους χώρους τους, να «δουν» τα σπίτια του εγκλεισμού όχι σαν φυλακές αλλά σαν παραδείσους και καταφύγια ψυχών.

How do you create an everlasting memory?

Make an ‘art-note’ of a special occasion and cherish it forever.

Ask our gallery's team for more ideas about personalising your art gifts the "Mamush-way". Is it an initial? A name? A special date? Creatively added text and symbols on artworks turn multiple edition art pieces into unique memorabilia for you and your loved ones.




How do you make the right choice?

Ideal gift ideas about love

At Mamush Gallery's online shop you can visit the page GIFT IDEAS, browse through the filters at the left side of the site and find ideal gifts for birthdays, christenings, newborn babies, weddings, for your friends and loved ones, for you and your families.

It is time to make that memory timeless!


You can search based on the artist's name, type of artwork or price range and make your choice! And if you haven't found what inspires you don't have to waste time looking around and instead contact us so we can find the best solution and idea for your occasion!


How do you want to present the art gift you will offer?

Every giftbox has a story

Ask about personalisation via email or by phone. We are always eager to provide the best possible application for your special customisable order. Your choice will remain an everlasting art piece with a unique added factor. There are numerous ideas and applications we could propose to you depending your given brief. Of course an art gift wouldn't be as great without a unique gift packaging and handwritten wish card. From start to finish we offer tailor-made solutions for the art of gifting!


Deliveries can be made in Greece or abroad via courier services or private transportation services.



How can I know beforehand the result?


Details that make a difference.

Needless to worry about that. We can show you photographs of similar customisable creations showcasing the various possibilities so you will have no uncertainty choosing what suits you best.


For example on the left you can see the result of a telephone order that started with a request about the sculpture "Love me" by Stathis Alexopoulos. Our client wanted to gift this sculpture to her dearest friend for her 40th Birthday.


Our proposal was to use a new limited edition color, to request the sculptor to engrave the special note on the sculpture before the colouring process and not on the marble base. Therefore through the final result the wishes will discretely remain there forever in her heart.


"Discrete" is the main keyword here as we believe that the message has to be there as an underlining effect and not overpowering the artwork. Of course there is a timeframe for your order as the artists themselves have to manually work on the customisation process therefore the level of your request for customisable art relates to the time given to us.

The more time we have the more options for you.


We make Personalized Art Gifts Better

Ηow can you get in touch with us?


You can ask about the personalisation process via e-mail or by phone. We will gladly provide the best solutions for you and your loved ones. After all, the art of gifting is a unique experience, one we hold very highly here at the gallery!

Presenting the ‘Comic' Series by Irene Vergitsi

Art Comic Characters are inspiring.

In her latest series, Irene Vergitsi, a Greek born artist and designer is exploring her favourite animation characters. By looking closely and analysing them she presents a journey to different times, where character traits arise from them. Memories come together, intricate shapes and lines help them connect and take form. The characters’ initial form is geometrically abstracted, the alteration process represents the fading of memories through the years. Color is abstractly placed accentuating different parts of the synthesis. The titles are contradictory to the characters along with the relationship they have with the added objects they interact with. No one is who they appear to be.


Art comic characters. The more the merrier.

A collection of 50 characters has been presented exclusively through Mamush Gallery. The original artworks drawn with pen and acrylics on paper and a special trial proof edition of 9 for each, where the color is uniquely hand-painted and the black line printed. These where the initial color proofs before deciding on the colours for the original ones. The size of the trial proof editions is slightly bigger (28,5 x 28,5) whereas the originals are at 25x25cm unframed.


Art comic characters. There's more folks!

The series has been an absolute hit as one can also order larger scale commissions or character combinations or even add initials on the trial proof editions. Since the love for these characters goes back many years there has been a unique connection with them. It is touching to see when a viewer has linked memories of his childhood with a certain animation character. And that is unquestionably a very powerful link we are gladly helping revive.


Art comic characters... One is not enough.
