The sculptures of Lambros Gatis move, make noise and throw light. The art works are metal compositions each part of which moves separately towards all directions, captures the eye of the visitor and make thinking to eject as the artist himself sees art to support its future on science technology. The world of nature evolves in slow motion, mechanical trees open and close, mechanical flowers blossom, bird-shaped machines fly and resemble metal flying mosquitoes.

The artist’s work has attracted the interest of the world-known theorist of new realism Pierre Restany.
