The awarded artist and researcher of the Ancient World, Konstantinos Fais, is a young person who, from within his own soul, is offering the spectator-observer images and memories, along with a great deal of History. He comes from the region of Epirus and through his vision he aims to promote the Heritage of Ancient Greece – to promote the long History of the greater Eastern Mediterranean, of this “blessed part” of the planet and ‘’Highway of the greatest Civilizations’’, with a combination of art and geoscience, portraying the way it became the artistic core for the archaic world rules of humanity.

Konstantinos launched his tour impressively and was presented with an exceptional response from friends of art, who were lucky enough to admire his artwork, but also to learn and “travel” through the trails of prehistory, and through the information and evidence quoted by the world-famous artist. In July, Konstantinos Fais selected the beginning of his tour to be Vergina in North Greece. Under the auspices of the awarded social association of Veria, “INITIATIVE FOR THE CHILD’’, he used a unique and elaborate, narrative method, in order to present to the children an original History lesson through his painting collection. The children and the staff at ‘’The Home of Vergina’’ who attended the presentation were greatly impressed.

The artist’s next stop was in Northeast Greece this time, in the city of Drama, in a successful and well-organized event hosted by the Ladies’ Union of Drama – S.A.F., a multi-awarded organization that since 1929 provides a range support and services for vulnerable populations, always in collaboration with Hermes Expo International and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, USA. The Epirote artist’s works impressed everybody once again with his non-realistic style, which derives from the remote Hellenistic Period and Greek Literature, as well. The theme of his artworks covers a vast period of time, from the Bronze Age, such as Minoan Crete and Mycenae, to the fall of the Hellenistic World.
