Arts

This section is devoted to the influence it had and has the island of Skiathos, in the psyche of the people of the arts and how this translates into their work.
Like our great poet Odysseus Elytis "The environment is the projection of the soul of a nation upon the matter", so the environment is nothing more than a hands-on representation of inwardness. What is the operative cause of this expression? Environment as nature or the human psyche.
Perhaps the answer may not be absolute, but in the case of Skiathos environment imposed just spontaneously within you. The conclusion may be subjective, but given that the concept of "subjectivity" influenced the direction of history from birth, you become partakers to discover your "objective" truth.
Take a tour on the island of Skiathos through the work of writers, poets, painters, photographers, either directly or indirectly influenced by the work from Writers of Skiathos, succumbed to the charm of the island and express their experiences through Art.
