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.
Is the iconography being painted directly on the wall ?admin2022-02-09T16:02:03+00:00
In general, it is not safe to paint directly on the wall and that’s why we don’t use that technique. Instead, to ensure the highest quality available as well as the 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.
Are you actually the ones that paint the icons ?admin2022-02-09T16:00:11+00:00
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.
Do you use the same designs in every church ?admin2022-02-09T15:46:44+00:00
Our work is entirely made by freehand and always is original in it’s design. Although each Church is unique and has it’s own design, shape and size, you won’t find the same themes and drawings anywhere else.
