The art historian Dr. Megaklis Rogakos notes for the exhibition: “For Michaelides, Ney Matogrosso is an emblematic figure, a symbol of freedom, and a lone rebel who, through art, has claimed individual liberties. He boldly defends what the real and genuine man has within him.In addition, with his ability to masquerade and transform, he awakened the archetypal images and elements of Greek mythology. ”
The title of the exhibition is inspired by a verse by the prominent Greek poet Nikos Engonopoulos (1907-1985) from the poem “Bolivar” referring to the conquest of freedom in Latin America.
Nikos Engonopoulos was a renowned Greek poet and artist, one of the most prominent representatives of the Greek generation of the 1930s, and the leading figure of the Surrealist movement in Greece
