What a beautiful art gallery. The artist is a Greek local artist with a lot of talent. His artwork was costly; the most miniature painting was worth a few thousand dollars. They ship everywhere via DHL for a fee. I appreciate his work; it is worth a visit, even if it is just to look and admire.

We have been to Santorini twice the first time we missed visiting Mati Art Gallery
So glad we found the Art Gallery, we meet Diana who was excellent she could not have been more help and polite.
The art gallery is a must visit as you will be amazed at what’s inside, you will have to take your time or you will miss the beautiful pieces of art that are all around the gallery. And don’t forget to go downstairs.
We did buy some art and will remember our visit always. Thank you.

If you’re into art or just love stylish installations, just don’t leave the island before visiting this shop. Owners are very polite. Prices are a little bit on the expensive side but totally worth it.

Hi Travis, Thank you very very much the kind and honest words, we really appreciate it! We love to be casual but professional with our clients and visitors, we believe it's the most human way to approach our business, plus it's who we are as people. Talking about art comes second in comparison to sales, always. Any time you are back on the island we would love to see you again in our space, take care until then and thanks again! All the best, Alex Kypris Director

We bought a piece of art from here many years ago, after a house move and re installation of our bronze fishes we managed to break one of the fish tails.
Emailed the gallery and within a few days we were able to put up our replacement piece. Alex and his staff were so helpful and kind, could not recommend this gallery more!

MATI Art Gallery is a MUST visit location if you are visiting Santorini. The artwork is contemporary and timeless. Mr Kypris and his team are extremely professional and I've purchased art in person in the gallery in Santorini as well as remotely through their website. Throughout the entire process, the team is very professional and the shipping process is seamless. The artwork is delivered safely through DHL, and the packaging leaves nothing to chance.
Mr Kypris makes beautiful art that captures the beauty of the Aegean Sea, and the natural movement of fish like I've never seen before. Having bought 5 pieces of art over the last 15 years, I'm very comfortable recommending MATI Art Gallery. Even if you are not intending to buy art, it's definitely worth a visit.

Simon, we can't thank you enough for your beautiful choice of words! You know how much we appreciate your support over the years and we know that our art goes to people who love it and will take care of it. This in itself means a lot to us! It was a pleasure meeting you (even if it's virtual), and I will be more than happy to share a bottle when you visit next. Take care and many many thanks again, doing business with has been equally smooth! All the best, Alex

We went to this gallery and fell in love with some of the pieces. I decided to surprise my husband with a gift or some artwork for his birthday. Diana was most helpful in helping me to select the pieces according to my budget and arranging quotes for shipping to Australia. She made the whole process so easy. I can't wait for the shipment to arrive!
