question…who is god? what is art?

Those are questions asked by the artist in the illustrated poem – PALIA HORA – which is Greek for Old Capital City (or town). Palia Hora of Aegina island once was the home of the entire island. It was in the centre of the island and afforded (and still affords) magnificent views over the entire Saronic Gulf – which was it’s downfall, as the inhabitants turned to piracy – and the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire ordered his General (Barrabus) to destroy the town and kill all its people – as a matter of a lesson to all – The Greek people built the town over a thousand years – and each important family had their own Chapel to worship God (Greek Orthodox) . Barrabus – (who mother was Greek) however left 32 chapels standing in remembrance of his brother (who died at the early age of 32) and out of respect for his mother. Today the Chapels have been restored (respectfully) by the Greek Church and visitors can now see murals in the chapels from the 12th to the 15th century by master Greek painters whose names have faded with time.

painters TUBES mag – news 2019 – 2020

From September 2019 and onwards painters TUBES will be publishing the printed magazine and the on-line version as an international art publication

These issues will cover art and artists from the UK, Canada, USA and mainland Europe. This is to broaden the  ‘visibility’ of national and global artists to colectors and galleries and encourage painters to engage with new ideas and techniques of art creation from different countries other than their own.

painters TUBES magazine now  *reach in excess of 500,000.  ‘Readers’ of TUBES issues now number over 87,000 – The recurring readers and ‘back issue readers count’ push that figure to nearer 100,000 art interested individuals and companies.

please note the *Reach – is the number of ‘on-line’ clicks that show the ‘issues front covers’  and/or selected inside features and Tubes website visits for ‘on line searches for Art’ and Contemporary Oil Paintings all in connection with our art magazine.

The recent excellent results from the recent new feature pages of  “Artists writing about Art and other Artists” (see issue #12 – Dean Entwistle and David Tycho feature articles) is to be expanded. Tubes suggest commercial gallery owners they ‘encourage’ their own stable of artists to ‘contact and work with TUBES’ to help them write (in their own words) about their own Art, other artists, or Art in general, for publication on line and in print.

Regular features will also include contributions from academic and art critic as per past issues. It is worth noting that painters TUBES magazine has been quoted on academic.edu (arts and culture) 581 times during 2018 to 2019.

painters TUBES will be launching the new website as of 1st September 2019 – And a new painters Tubes APP for downloading for all devices, linked to the TUBES platforms which will be on offer to readers on line.
