K. N. Patsios @ Underdog Art Gallery

Last week I went to the exhibition opening of a Greek artist, represented by The Blender GalleryKonstantinos Patsios presented his first solo exhibition in the UK, ‘The Twisted Odyssey” at the Underdog Art Gallery in London, curated by Michaela Vergottis. The industrial space was a great combination to his contemporary works of art that are influenced by Homer’s rapsodies. He presents 24 works, just as Homer had 24 rapsodies. Patsios often critisises the socio-political and economic situation of our time through sculptures, paintings and collages. The show was firstly presented in Athens and will be in London until the 10th of June. Go and have a look, it’s well worth it!

Apart from critisising his surroundings, Patsios invites the viewer to this conversation, for him to decide what he believes in. Patsios studied in the Athens School of Fine Art and has done eight solo exhibitions and various group ones since 2005. I briefly spoke with Patsios at the opening who said: “I gather papers from travelling, tickets, stickers everything and make them into a collage”. This is rather interesting as he repurposes something so mundane into art and gives it a new meaning.
