MIA FAIR 2011

Pagratis Pagratidis
12 MAY – 15 MAY 2011

Kourd Gallery participates in ΜΙΑ Fair, the international contemporary Art Fair dedicated to photography that takes place in Milan. The represented artist, Pagratis Pagratidis, captures the novel part of urban and suburban landscapes, as the color penetrates in a dramatic way the black and white tones of the surface of the photographs, distorting reality and giving a new meaning to the present.

Born in Kavala, Greece in 1965, Pagratis Pagratidis began his career as a musician and a sound engineer. Since 2000, he has immersed himself in photography and, since 2009, he has shown his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has also been distinguished in various international competitions and his works can be found in Greek and international private collections. In 2015, he launched his first e-book “Shortly before dawn”.
