The Frissiras Museum houses the private collection of over 3,500 works of its founder, Vlassis Frissiras. An attorney by profession but passionate about Art. He started collecting works by young Greek visual artists in 1978, with the resolute aim of putting together a collection made up exclusively of paintings centered on two axes: the human form and body, and representation, i.e. the figurative art that reinstates a method of painting which has been more or less marginalized by newer forms of art. In the 1990s, his interest turned to European artists.

What are ideas made from? Continuing the “New Horizons in Painting” trilogy, Frissiras museum promotes contemporary trends in Visual Arts and suggests intriguing artists, from the museum’s collections. In this second part, entitled “The Unpredictability of Ideas”, various depictions of visions and ideas are presented through the works of twenty-one artists. Each of them weaves in their own way unique worlds, some times dream-like, while others using scientific tools, thus creating images, which are bound to surprise not only the viewer, but sometimes even the artists themselves.
