ΜΑΤΙ is the main agent for the works of visual artist Yorgos Kypris and the central venue for his exhibitions. Founded in 1990 on Santorini to promote the work of major artists, it soon became the hub of fine taste and the contemporary views on art and the local point for a broad public interested in matters of artistic expression. Today ΜΑΤΙ uses its facilities exclusively to present the oeuvre of sculptor Yorgos Kypris in the best possible way.Yorgos Kypris is an internationally acclaimed and awarded artist and has installed his works for public and private collections around the world. His artworks focus on the study of human behaviour, and the results of this behaviour to nature to other forms of life and to humanity.The gallery provides information to those who wish to know his art, and distributes printed and electronic material about the artist. It carries out studies, organizes the artist’s exhibitions, installations and projects and handles the insurance and the shipping of the works to destinations around the world.

Interesting pieces

This art gallery has very unusual pieces, many of which feature fish but there are also some other things such as butterflies that were very attractive. Friendly, helpful staff.

What a great art gallery - only wish that we could have afforded to buy some of the bronze / glass fish.

Most unusual designs and concepts. The fish theme was used in so many different ways - a larger space would probably set some of them off better

In the center of "touristy" Fira there's a real jem- original and affordable jewelry, the "fish" art is just amazing to look at. Very friendly staff.

Some amazing stuff in here, I wanted to buy everything but sadly no room in the cases.. We particularly loved the individual bronze fish which screw into the wall, you need about a doz to make a shoal..

Loved the art in this gallery. Do stop in for a look. I thought the jewelry was unique and affordable. Not your everyday finds. It is located near the Atlantis Hotel if I remember correctly. Some of their fish and bird pieces are found decorating area restaurants.

My husband and I wondered into this gallery after having dinner and watching the sunset in Santorini. We were in awe of many of the pieces of art that were on display.
