CHEAPART influenced the second half of the ‘90’s art scene in Greece through its vibrant expressions, ideas and activities. It is the most active contemporary art organization in Greece and one of the most vibrant in Europe. CHEAPART liberated artwork from eliticity, redefining art a cultural necessity for all, helping the wide audience to appreciate and buy art. CHEAPART created a new and bold visual language with slogans and phrases that voiced its views and perspectives. It is important to note that a number of ongoing cultural activities in Greece that draw from the ideas and dynamics of CHEAPART, enrich today’s contemporary Athenian art scene.
CHEAPART is not an intermediate, it creates opportunities for artists. Artwork has been established at the same price for the past five years: 5.000, 10.000 and 15.000 drachmas. A large colorful puzzle of 1,000+ original artworks by 74 artists, awaits you at CHEAPART and Epikentro Gallery, which for the third consecutive year, has furthered CHEAPART's development and expansion.
