The first exhibition of 2017 in the Galerie Born Berlin is showing the work of the painter Yannis Markatonakis, who resides in Paris but was born in Chania/Crete in 1955. He studied Chemistry in London, then went to sea for a few years, before going to Paris in 1985 to study painting. The work selected by the Galerie all appear at first glance to be Maritime images. However, they are more than that. In a wider sense, they are Still Life
