Intriguing taf

The Art foundation (taf) is an innovative and experimental concept to art. It wants to encourage people to engage in discussions and debate.

There is an old building in Monastiraki from 1870. From the small Normanou street 5 one can find tiny golden taf-sign on the graffiti painted wall. Right next to sign is an old wooden door just waiting to be opened. One most be well prepared and orientate carefully to find the place.

Concrete stairs leads to a basement which is actually a club in the yard surrounded by an art gallery.

The whole taf concept is rough and industrial-like but there is something in the atmosphere that causes an adrenalin rush when you enter from the well hidden door to the secret garden of temporary art lovers.

The exhibition explores aspects and meanings of tattoo in correlation with the portrait of their owner. It lets your imagination fly making up stories behind characters on the pictures.

There is almost 200 men and women ready to tell their story through 400 unique tattoos - if you dare to look under their skin.
