Art Object is an artistic creation of aesthetic value. Our brand focuses on the creation of art objects for concept and museum stores. Our motto has always been “Inspired by Art History”. This means for us that we experiment, create and produce art and design. Our desire is to express our very own point of view through design and share it with people, as well as to keep learning. A way to do that, is to try always doing something new.
"Inspired by Art History"
We started back in 2013 by doing silkscreen printed T-shirts for the tourist market in Greece and Spain. Now we use materials such as leather and acrylic for accessories, clothing, home decor, and stationery items as well as art and illustrations. Between our main clients are the Acropolis Museum and the museum stores of the Greek Ministry of Culture, we have been designing exclusive collections for them. We also carry out most of the production processes in our space.
The Space & The Team
Our Space is a creative workshop based in Exarcheia, Athens. It is also a store for our brand and a showroom for experiments with visual arts, design, fashion and interior design. Local designers are welcome for collaborations in the space.
Exarcheia, our neighborhood, is renowned for being Athens' historical centre of all kinds of different political and intellectual activism, located in downtown Athens, the city we love for its historical and contemporary.
The creative team is formed by co-founders Zacharias Petrakis and Alejandro Hernández. Zacharias was born in Crete. He studied Fine Arts, in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. His specialisation is Sculpture. We can appreciate it in his art:
