Brian Eno: 77 Million Paintings

Brian Eno may be better known for his great musical career—he has been at the center of the music scene ever since he co-founded Roxy Music in the ‘70s—but the truth is that he is also a genius in the field of visual arts, with works that are, in a way, an extension of his ambient music. He creates amazing sound- and lightscapes, like the work 77 Million Paintings, which was first shown in Tokyo in 2006, has traveled all over the world, and is now in Greece, having arrived within the framework of the Summer Nostos Festival by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

According to Eno, the project is “visual music.” 77 Million Paintings is a large-scale installation of music and light which is constantly evolving before the viewer’s eyes. The viewer can connect with the work just like a conventional painting, but knows that each combination and sequence of images can never be repeated.

Due to high demand, the installation will remain in the NLG’s Book Castle until 10/07.
