About our work

Deaconing through the art of Byzantine Iconography

How we work

The Icons that “by Divine economy” we create, are always in accordance with the Byzantine iconography Tradition. We try to paint unique designs, because we know that countless believers will deposit their prayers and their distresses.

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.

The materials we use are mineral powders, mixed with an acrylic adhesive on a cotton canvas of the finest quality and prepared by us. In our workshop, we carefully study all of the aspects of the project at hand and areas that will be painted, in order to perfectly fit to the required dimensions. The final finishing touches are done locally, based on the architecture and the Church’s illumination.

Project Planning Analysis

We visit the church and have an initial meeting with the church’s committee, to talk about the project at hand.

We proceed to get the exact measurements of the area of the church that the project will be based on, as well as several photos of it that will be used to make a virtual model.

An extensive planning of the project is made as well as the creation of the virtual model that shows how the project will look like when finished.

We finalize the the project model and send it over to the Church’s Committee, for briefing and decision.

Following the agreement, after not being objected by anyone from the Church’s Committee, a final contract is made (stating our financial offer, a detailed reference of what will be included in the project, as well as the date that it will be finished), signed from both parties.

A deposit of 1/3 of the amount agreed is made to us, upon the beginning of the project.

Based on the project planning, model and final arrangements agreed, the iconography project starts developing.

After the completion of the whole project in our workshop, it’s installation and finishing touches are made in the Church, with the required scaffolding already being arranged by the Church’s Committee.

When the project is finally completed and installed, as written in the contract agreed, the final payment is made.
