The Art Dose carries on the legacy of Kapopoulos, an auction house founded in 1991, when the art market in Greece was extremely niche. It was then that Kapopoulos Fine Arts decided to demystify all previous elite practices that made art inaccessible and relevant only to a privileged few and worked hard to create a totally new environment. Through his auctions and exhibitions, Kapopoulos continues, to this day, his purposeful journey that has practically made modern art what it is today in Greece. He continues to deconstruct the old status quo by re-establishing established Greek artists and discovering exciting new talent with a distinctive voice. Kapopoulos is constantly expanding its already vast network by launching new Kapopoulos galleries and art rooms in Greece and Cyprus so that it becomes even more accessible and gives voice to its high aesthetic standards.
The art curator Niki Kapopoulou grew up in a family with a long tradition in the art industry. He holds a BA in Art Management & Entrepreneurship from the University of Westminster and a Masters in Art Business from Sotheby's Institute of Art. His extensive professional experience combines auctioning, cataloging, event planning, curating and business management. He has worked for Kapopoulos Fine Arts, the Divani Caravel Hotel, the Opera Gallery in London and assisted the art historian Maria Migadi in the management and curation of private art collections. His most recent curatorial work includes organizing an exhibition at the Old Brompton Gallery, in collaboration with Kapopoulos Fine Arts, with 28 international and Greek artists, and curating an exhibition at the C. John Gallery in London, showing a wide range of works of art. Niki is interested in the complex relationship between art and politics and how art can profoundly influence our daily life. Last but not least, Niki is involved in major charities for the esteemed Make-A-Wish foundation and participated in the "Into the Dark" fundraising event.
