ATHENS.- Kalfayan Galleries present the solo exhibition of Edouard Sacaillan titled ‘Les Toits de Paris’. The opening will take place today, Thursday, 25th January 2024, 19.00-22.00.

Edouard Sacaillan’s paintings provoke with their honesty and poetry. With his characteristic artistic idiom that explores and constantly experiments with the limits of representation, the internationally renowned painter -based in Athens and Paris - invites the viewers to enter into his own unique dream world, a colorful parade of ‘spectator’s, ‘clowns’, ‘car drivers’ and ‘swimmers’.

At the epicenter of the artist's interest lies, as always, the study of light, a fact that is vividly reflected in the new series titled "Les toits de Paris" (‘The rooftops of Paris’) presented for the first time at Kalfayan Galleries.
