Claudine is a French visual artist. She had never done a street mural, but got excited about the concept and ended up leaving two.
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.
