The Museum of Contemporary Art of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation prepares for summer 2017 a tribute to the prominent poet and painter Nikos Engonopoulos. One hundred and ten paintings and selected poems will highlight his poetic sensitivity and his inherent visual perspective. Elements that together created the impression in size and originality of his painting and literary work. Painter, stage designer, poet, and professor at EM Polytechnic University, is considered the main representatives of the 1930s. One of the main speakers and pioneers of the surrealist movement in Greece.
“The words of the poet and the act of the painter, in the unified, inseparable unity, as we are most widely known, the basis of the artistic creation of the distinguished painter and poet.” This is what the organizers write about Nikos Engonopoulos. For the one who identified his life with art and considered it an elixir that honors and perpetuates life.
Each aspect is framed by in-depth texts written by knowledgeable people who are deeply aware of his work and included in the bilingual 290-page catalog, which reproduces all 110 works.
With imaginative inventiveness, imaginative skill and intelligence, spiritual competence, and mental vigor. It overcame conventional constraints, commitments, and the freedom with which it was encouraged by its surrealistic dialectics, style, and ethos. He was left with irresistible zeal and unmistakable creative momentum in the search for new-looking expressions, forms, performances, and verbal formalities.
