Rosemary came to Lakkos during the Heraklion municipalities street art festival. We broke away from Lakkos and made paintings in the equally lovely area of Agia Triada.
During the month of July New York artists Sharyn Finnegan offered free drawing lessons form the residency. At the end of her stay we had a group exhibition in the main house.
We had a very busy June with some fantastic artists who painted murals in Lakkos. We presented all of the murals on the same night and finished with a party on Lakkos Platia. It was so much fun and the community loved the event. Thank you Sharyn Finnegans, Britta Stenmann, Ann Shostron and John Bowman.
Thank you to the Heraklion Municipality for supplying the paint, and Antje Larson for the photos.
Dizi Alex is a Greek street artist from northern Greece. She wanted to do a painting in Lakkos and we were very happy to have her. The work is on the Lakkos square. We have been pushing her to make a website but as for now you can look her up on facebook under her tag name of Dizi Alex.
Melanie came to Crete to escape the cold winter in the UK and work on molds to be cast with bronze. We were very lucky as she wanted to make a piece and leave it here. She has for a long time had dreams of flying. Because of this she made a large sculptor of Icarus, which we hung in the local square.
Candy and James came to Lakkos to develop their project about dealing with grief and death. Full artists details and project description in the facebook event page. Thank you Antje Larsen for photos. Thank you Heraklion Municipality for supplying the paint.
