They were the favoured pieces, medium and small, that graced the Athens house of George Zongolopoulos over a span of fifty years. Kept from the public gaze, to the Godfather of Sculpture these works of brass, stainless steel and plexiglass were as familiar as his own skilled hands. He would often return to the “completed projects”, supplementing them with new elements or ideas. Now for the first time, many of these largely unknown sculptures from his Psychiko home are presented at Kolonaki’s Roma Gallery in a wonderful time capsule of Zongolopoulos’s creative arc. Zongolopoulos, whose signature Umbrellas installation defines the Thessaloniki seafront, represented Greece 11 times in Biennales from 1940 until 2001. He died in 2004 at the age of 103.
