Greek Music Express: Painters on Greek album covers: George Stathopoulos, part 1 | 01 April 2024

Today, our track list includes songs from albums with artwork drawn by painter George Stathopoulos. In particular, we shall be focusing on more folk paths, with creations by Nikos Mamagakis, Apostolos Kaldaras, Stavros Kougioumtzis, Stavros Xarhakos and Stamos Semsis. Stathopoulos is not only a top-class painter but also an intellectual, a wise man. “Becoming better is a matter of personal education, he notes. And most importantly: you choose. If you can’t see things, nothing happens. ‘There is no one so deaf as the one who does not want to hear’ as the saying goes. It is a matter of availability, of the desire to observe and explore. The mess that we’ve reached today artistically, economically, and socially is partly because we don’t listen to others. Greeks just don’t listen”.
