The Magic of Mykonos at Eden Gallery
A walk through the streets of Mykonos is synonymous with warm summer magic. The whitewashed structures, cobblestone streets and salty air give one the feeling that Greek gods and goddesses are just around the corner, waiting to let you into their mysterious world of fateful stories. The island has long been associated with magical nightlife, summer paradise, ancient Greek myths, and history dating back to the early 11th century BCE. The rocks that cover the island are even said to be the petrified corpses of giants that the Greek god Hercules killed.
Mykonos Town, the largest town on the island, is filled with shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars. While a culture of shopping dominates the town, the ancient architecture remains, giving passersby a taste of new and old.
Alongside this exciting atmosphere exists Nammos Village. Comprising five buildings with state-of-the-art, sophisticated architecture, Nammos Village is Mykonos’ primary spot for indulgence in designer shopping, premier art installations, and a taste of cosmopolitan life. A stroll through Nammos Village will bring you the air of ancient enchantment of Mykonos, while simultaneously providing over 12,000 sq. meters of cutting edge designer experience. It is the ultimate synthesis of the worlds of high end fashion and art.
As the warm May air begins to take over the Greek Islands, so does the wanderlust of summer. Mykonos is dormant in the winter and comes alive during the summer months, starting in May and going until September. As Nammos Village opens for the season, expect to find inspiration at Eden Gallery Mykonos, located in the heart of it all and steps from the famous Psarou Beach.
Eden Gallery’s collection at Mykonos consists of artworks made by Eden’s finest artists, among some of the best and most renowned in the contemporary art world. In addition to an airy yet quaint gallery space with views of mountains against the Aegean Sea, life-sized, 3D sculptures by Eden artists line the cobblestone streets. Several characters that are consistently present in their artworks–such as Alec Monopoly’s Richie Rich, Angelo Accardi’s ostrich, David Kracov’s hearts and butterflies, Dorit Levinstein’s Renoir Dancers, and more–are placed thoughtfully in front of and surrounding the gallery. Guests are able to experience the art uniquely up-close, as its backdrop is not just the gallery space, but the real life streets of Mykonos.
Artists Alec Monopoly, Angelo Accardi, and Kunst Met een R will each host their own exclusive artist events throughout the summer months at the Mykonos gallery. Eden Gallery holds these events annually for a rotating selection of artists, with Alec Monopoly’s event happening every year. This year, Alec Monopoly will complete a live painting as he celebrates in the Greek paradise, and guests can expect that each event will include special interactive art exhibitions, live music, and a delicious chef menu.
