The Greece Notebook, by Michael McGregor, is a collection of “point and click” drawings – each made in a flash to emulate the candidness of shooting snapshots on a disposable camera while on holiday. Each rendering was created during a 3 month journey around Greece in 2022.
By no means a flashy trip to Mykonos or an influencer’s paid holiday in Santorini, The Greece Notebook dives into the mundane, the daily details of every day life in Greece. From the Ionian islands to Athens; from the port city of Piraeus to the Aegean Sea and the Cyclades, McGregor’s impressionist travelogue is an observational examination of Greece through the eyes of an outsider.
Well known for his lively still-life paintings and drawings, Michael McGregor is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. He has exhibited in the US, the UK, Italy and Mexico, as well as contributed to various international magazines and periodicals.
Founded in 2021, Hyper Hypo is an Athens-based independent bookshop and publishing house which specializes in the wealth of contemporary visual culture.
