Lappas creates a flamboyantly colored playground where one can meander through concepts of identity, urbanism, humor and existentialism.

His use of familiar imagery remains encapsulated in larger forms allowing for playful discoveries, rediscoveries and interpretations.

He expands the space, naturally provided by humor, for contemplating on previously repressed or silenced issues, by alternating between abstraction and narration. Lappas also comments on the perceived “Greekness” as inextricably linked to Ancient Greece, as opposed to the grimy actualities of the everyday Greek experience.

His humorous approach is not only a simple indicator of incongruity between the two; it also serves as a reflection on the arbitrary construction of such identities.,


Over the last fifteen years The Breeder has been a pioneer in the development of the contemporary art scene in Athens. In 2008 the gallery moved to masterfully renovated factory from the 1970s in the centre of Athens. One of the main goals of the gallery is to dynamically promote a select group of emerging Greek artists on the global arena and show cutting edge international artists in the city of Athens. 

Throughout 2013 The Breeder operated a pop-up gallery space in Monte Carlo, Monaco. In June 2015 The Breeder inaugurated a residency program. The Breeder gallery and The Breeder Residency serve as a link connecting cultures and supporting a deeper understanding and exchange, political ideas and ideals in regards to contemporary art production.
