ks made over the last few months and enthused by various sources, including global events, literature and music.

The exhibition name Radical Times comes from one of the new painting on display, which topic is related to the political and social chaos and to the considerable events we are experiencing today.

Another interesting work on show was Deep Water. This painting was made while the artists observed migrants coming to Greece escaping from the dreadful Middle East war zone.

Other works like Wandering and Wondering (2016), Nightlife and Dreamtime (2016) focused on holiday time, contemplation and relax in a contraposition with the hectic nature of life.
