Irini Drossou, painter

The artist Irini Drossou will be exhibiting her new work. She is a restless mind that experiments once again in an effort to find new means of expression. She has proven with her previous work "Hephaistites" made from lava, that she knows how to risk and innovate at the same time. With her new work she makes a "loud" comeback by using a mixed technique with materials such as acrylics and lava on plexiglass.

Born in Imerovigli of the island of Santorini, she lives and works between Santorini and Athens.

Irini Drossou studied painting next to Takis Schinias and Yiouli Gikopoulou. She has also learned the art of religious painting next to Adamantia Giannopoulou.

This is her second individual exhibition on the island she was born. Her first solo exhibition took place at the Belonio Centre, at Fira in the island of Santorini, entitled "Hfaistites".

She has taken part in various group exhibitions and has been awarded by UNESCO.


The European Festivals Association (EFA) has been uniting distinguished music, dance, theatre and multidisciplinary arts festivals from Europe and beyond for more than 60 years.Thanks to EFA’s history and the continuous support of its members, EFA was chosen to implement the pilot project EFFE by the European Commission.

                The first of EFFE’s initiatives is a quality label. This label is given to festivals with an artistic commitment, involvement in their local communities and a European and global outlook.

                Gyzi Megaron Festival has been selected to receive the EFFE Label 2015-2016. It is now part of the EFFE Platform, initiated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level. The Label recipients represent 31 European countries and offer a wide range of genres and activities to their audiences.

2016 has been defined as Greece’s Year in Russia and Russia’s Year in Greece, by an agreement formed as a joint statement, signed by the two countries in October 2013.

                This year aims to build useful partnerships of mutual benefit with substantial development in both countries’ cultural, scientific, business and social relations, expanding Greek accessibility in Russian society, especially the province, opening up new areas of cultural, scientific, academic and business cooperation, and seeking new markets for tourism, Greek products and Greek innovative productivity.
