When Afroessa was exhibited at the International Boat Show in Southampton in September 2021 the original and all 15 Artists Proof special limited edition proofs were sold out!
Marina Syntelis (b.1975) has painted one of the most exciting and highly sought after hyper-realistic images of the sea in the contemporary market today!
In Marinas words "In Greek, the word is used to describe the foamy sea. The title combines the two vowels, one next to the other, allowing more air to flow. While I was painting this, I actually felt the air. I let my brush be driven by this air and lost myself in the fine lines of the waves. I wanted to experience the freedom of the ever-changing waves
