Three young visual artists, all of them Fellows of the 1st SNF Artist Fellowship Program, spent some days (July 13-19) at the village of Vamvakou, within the Artist Residence Program organized by Vamvakou Revival. Iasonas Megoulas (aka Cacao Rocks), Alexandros Simopoulos and Pavlos Tsakonas, studied the history of the village and created three murals, potentially landmarks, opening a discussion on the use of the public space and its relationship to nature and art.

The Artist Residency Program was organised by Vamvakou Revival within the initiative of the Revival of the village thanks to the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
