Yannis Moralis

The Benaki Museum on Vasilissis Sofias Avenue has an exhibition of Yannis Moralis' preliminary drawings of some of the carvings and tiles that he designed  for various public and private buildings. The huge carving on the side of the Hilton hotel was the first of a collaboration between artist and architects which spanned  at least twenty years.

Unfortunately I was not allowed  to take any photographs, except for  the two panels outside the exhibition room. This panel was made for a bank in Kolonaki and was subsequently donated by the bank to the Benaki Museum.

The artist is standing next to another panel in this photograph.
