Gallery by Nena
In the picturesque alleys of Nafplio, where your walks never end, among the bougainvillea flowers, the special buildings, the beautiful balconies and the old doors with the knockers, with your head and gaze constantly turning ecstatically around, you come across something special all the time for your next selfie or an amazing shop, that will blow your mind! Except that the Gallery by Nena, which I unexpectedly encountered in the picturesque alley of Kokkinou street, is not a simple shop, but a total revelation!...
A true Exhibition of works of Art in all objects of the place, of every kind! Not only the unique canvases and paintings hanging all around on the white walls, but also the painted table outside, where you see Nena drinking her coffee, on the shelves, the painted glass vases, the pebbly decorations of the floors, the curtains of the dressing room... But, what definitely draws you in and you can't resist it (besides the attractive presence of the artist, of course), is her incredible painted clothes, hats, bags, which all compose an endless feast of color in this place, filled with Art! Art everywhere, in fabric and in all materials! An art that you can place in your home or wear yourself and highlight your uniqueness!...
Serbian of origin, with her father an engineer, wood craftsman and painter and a designer mother, Nena Stojanovic grew up in an artistic environment, which had a key influence on her coming of age. Later, at school, she won an award for the best children's drawing in Yugoslavia, which was also published.
She moved to Nafplio in the year 2000 and since 2010 she has been promoting her art professionally in Greece as well. Member of eete.gr and UNESCO Greece, with an International Identity Card for Professional Artists, her works are bought by collectors from all over the world. In fact, two of her portraits were sold and sent to the address of the White House (USA)!
In her shop in the old town, she can exhibit only a small sample of her work -which can also be found online- but also the wearable art, in high quality clothing, hats and bags. Really hard to choose, as the pieces are unique; true works of art! So it's better to discover them up close, because art is to be seen, not to be described...
You can see all of Nena's artworks in the online store of the famous Saatchi Art Here
