As I walked out one morning…


Zoumboulakis Galleries present the solo show “As I walked out one morning” by the Swedish artist Daniel Egnéus. It will last from May 14 until June 6, 2015.Athens, through the artist’s eyes, is depicted in drawings and digital prints. Having as guideline his everyday itinerary from his home to his studio and backwards, Daniel Egnéus begun sketching his Athenian walks:  Pittaki Street, Athinas Street, Agias Eirinis Square, The Meat Market and a number of other streets. Through his drawings he searches the small details, the aftermath of the blue sky on the buildings, beauty’s charm and ugliness as well.

As he writes: “My working title for this exhibition has been ‘See Athens before you die, if you’re not killed by the heat, the cars will get you for sure’. But being still alive after all my obsessive promenading in Athens I changed it. (…)
The drawings and sketches are all everyday scenes, from people going about their daily lives to the ventilation system from hell in Praxitelous Street or my occasional trip to the port of Pireaus.”
