The Pulse of contemporary art beats in the heart of the Kolonaki district. It is a project developed in the centre of Athens, which includes the (under construction) Pulse hotel, residences, gallery and restaurant designed in a dynamic way to offer high quality services to professional visual artists and art lovers. Nevertheless, the Pulse Kolonaki gallery has already opened and I visited it last week. The brightness and the vibrant atmosphere of the art space pleasantly surprised me. It is located in a rather shady but busy alley of Kolonaki called Charitos str., where many voguish restaurants, cafes and little shops are based.
However, what makes this gallery unique is the fact that it focuses on promoting fine art photography by showcasing artworks of upcoming and renowned local and international artists. Photography has finally found its place among the finest forms of art and, as a photographer myself, I highly recommend a visit to The Pulse Kolonaki if you are interested in exploring how a photograph evokes emotions and changes the way we see the process of creating images.
