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.

We visited the gallery during our vacations in Santorini. The exhibits were great each and everyone. What i liked most, was the "silent watchman", sitting on the rooftop.
