Q&A with figurative sculptor Zenos Frudakis - portraits of living and historical individuals and poetic/philosophical sculpture

Posted on October 4, 2019 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

“Eleftheria” (Freedom) has always been important to me, as it has been for Greeks, and for people in general.

My love of philosophy also began with Greek philosophers."
