The book THE ART, MYSELF will be a luxury ARTbook, size A4 in which each artist who will participate will have 2 pages at his disposal. In these two pages there will be a short biography and photos of 3-4 of his works. The book will be in GREEK and ENGLISH, as it will travel after its publication in America to the libraries of two private universities. Specifically in the library of one of the oldest universities of ADELPHI UNIVERSITY and in the GOTTESMAN LIBRARIES belonging to TEACHERS COLLEGE - COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY. AND HIS JOURNEY WILL NOT STOP THERE !!!

THE BOOK can be attended by all forms of visual arts, artists who deal with PAINTING, SCULPTURE, PHOTOGRAPHY, INSTALLATIONS, HAGIOGRAPHY, ART JEWELERY ...
The publication of the book with the good will take place in JUNE 2022 since we want it to take place at a time when we hope that global events have calmed down or ended (like the war) or others have stabilized, such as the precision that continuous instability, has helped to create a climate of uncertainty.
After the publication of the book, every artist who participates in it will have at his disposal 2 FREE copies for his own use !!!
The book will be published by FLISVOS PUBLICS publications by Mr. Michalis Tzamalis, who is also an artist.
It will be released in a central bookstore in Athens, while there will be an official presentation of the book, so that during its presentation there is the possibility of sale.
WE DO NOT WANT IN ANY CASE TO BE A BOOK THAT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED TO THE PARTICIPANTS - PARTICIPATING ARTISTS AND FINALLY IT WILL NOT BE SOLD
We want it to be a book that will be a "good paper" in the hands of the participating visual artists, to prove that their works and CV have been promoted abroad.
