VASILIS ZENETZIS ( 1935-2016)
Zenetzis painted the area of Monastiraki with passion and immense love. He immortalised the area of Monastiraki, Plaka and the Acropolis like no other Greek artist has done before or until today. He lived in the area, he loved the area and he put his soul in the paintings that immortalise central Athens with the Acropolis at the heart of everything.
