Winning artist sees his stamp exhibited at UN

The United Nations’ first Greek stamp depicts a marble head in fragments on the ground while a shirt floats above it. The painting, acrylic on canvas, titled «Memories,» is the work of Dimitris Nabaldis, 45, from Didimoteicho in northern Greece. He was one of 25,000 professional artists who took part in an international competition organized by a British company, Windsor and Newton, on the subject, «Our World in 2000,» and one of the six winners whose works have been made into stamps. The winning works were chosen from entries in 51 national competitions, and a selection was exhibited at the UN headquarters in New York. An exhibition of Nabaldis’s work from 1985-2002 opens officially on Monday, March 4 at 8.30 p.m. at the Foreign Ministry on Vas. Sofias Ave, curated by art historian Takis Mavrotas.
