J. Spyropoulos Awards Collection
The collection has been enriched with many works of art, donated by the J. Spyropoulos Awards winner-artists to the Foundation.
A collection of young contemporary artists has been created, showcasing the artistic pursuits from the 90s to the present day.
Since the J. Spyropoulos Annual Awards are open to artists from all disciplines and all forms of visual arts, the award-winning artists enriched Foundation’s Awards Collection with a diverse range of artworks, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photographies and other multi-media such as videos.
J. Spyropoulos Annual Awards
The establishment of the J. Spyropoulos Awards was one of the primary objectives of the Foundation and reflects the intention of its founders and especially the desire of Jannis Spyropoulos to support new artists.
The J. Spyropoulos Awards are awarded annually to two young artists under the age of thirty. For twenty-five years the Awards included cash rewards for the winning artists. Today, the Annual Awards are honorary and offer artists the distinction of belonging to a special group, exposed and studied alongside with the life & works of the J. Spyropoulos.
