The overlooked art of portraiture takes a fresh approach at The “Beret from Montmartre” project, part of the Velvet festival. Well known artists recapture the spirit of Montmartre (and even the common Greek island sight of sidewalk artists) doing for free  the portraits of  the audience and passersby. You made me look great!

My Wet Calvin in a ‘mystical’ live performance at Batis beach. The passers-by were curious “is it a new religious sect?, is it a ceremony?”, as paper wings were mandatory for everyone wishing to enter in the tent and a paper-bearded St Peter made sure nobody with clipped wings would enter. Finally the tent was torn and the angels spread in Faliro.
