DIMITRIS’ BOOK OF ETCHINGS AVAILABLE FOR SALE
18 signed copies
This is the result of Dimitris’ introduction to the etching technique, instructed by Euripides Papadopetrakis: A limited edition of 18 signed copies in the form of a hand-sewn book is sold with 10 etchings 30×30 cm. The book and the body in ten parts were showcased in the group exhibition BURR at the Kören process space in Koukaki.
OUT OF THE BLUE, A FAN
Dimitris was selected as the artist to create the emblematic fan for the first Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Greece. The artistic inspiration was drawn from the Mycenaean vases and colors derived from Mycenaean nature.
A SPECIAL PROJECT FOR LOUIS VUITTON
Dimitris Papaioannou was commissioned to create a one-night-only special performance to unveil the new High Jewelry collection of Louis Vuitton. This exclusive event was held at the Odeon of Herodion Atticus, situated under the Acropolis, on the 13th of June, 2023. For this occasion, Dimitris assembled a team of 35 Greek artists and reunited with Breanna O’Mara, the leading performer from the productions Transverse Orientation (2021) and Since she (2018).
