We have the quality and expertise gained over 54 years in byzantine iconography.
I’ve been working as a professional iconographer and serve the Tradition of the Sacred art of byzantine Orthodox iconography since 1970.
As a professional iconographer, throughout the years of my career, I’ve been working in more than 50 churches in Greece and USA, either in some parts or as a whole project.
Our artwork is based in the Macedonian school (13th – 14th Century). The main representatives of that school were Manuel Panselinos and Michael Astrapas, so that’s why our work is mostly characterized by it’s specific color, along with bright tone & grandiose composition. The faces and clothes are widely illuminated with inner spiritual light, drawn always strictly according to Tradition.
Our work is entirely made by freehand and always is original in it’s design, you won’t find the same themes and drawings anywhere else.
Our Team consists of Dimitrios Mourlas (Expert iconographer, Team Leader & Senior iconographer of the workshop), Roula Degaiti (Professional iconographer & Co-worker of Dimitrios Mourlas since 1997) and Ioannis Prevenios (Professional iconographer & Co-worker of Dimitrios Mourlas since 2004).
Our workshop is based in Athens, Greece
Yes, all artwork is made entirely by us
In general, it is not safe to paint directly on the wall and we don’t use that technique. Instead, to ensure the highest quality available and longevity of the iconography placed on the wall, we design and paint on cotton canvas of the finest quality and specifications, being prepared by us in our workshop.
The materials we use are mineral powders, mixed with an acrylic adhesive on a cotton canvas of the finest quality, in order to achieve bright and lively colors, as well as create special shades that suit the lighting of any Church.
