Angelos Giallinas, Watercolour Artist of Corfu







I recommend, on YouTube, "The Aquarelles of Angelos Giallinas".

Also this video

It's a disgrace that his house is in such a bad state of repair. Not only is the house (and roof) in a serious state, but his paintings are also at risk. He had wanted it to become a museum.

I understand that the Ministry of Culture has been lobbied for several years to formally approve the necessary repair work to the roof. The funding is apparently available in Corfu to get the work done.

  1. Fabulous exhibition of his watercolours of Corfu currently at the Carmelite Chapel, Old Fortress, Corfu until 8 Aug 2012 (well worth the EUR 4 entry fee just to see this collection)

  2. I fell in love with his work at this lovely exhibition. Unfortunately there was no information available at that site about the artist or where to obtain prints of his works. I've been trolling the internet ever since I got home for any tidbits I could find.

    I've found a couple of postcards on ebay, but would love to get larger prints. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you!

  3. You could try writing to the Reading Society of Corfu (Anagnostiki Etairia). Mr Pieris may be able to advise.

    Good luck
