Dio Horia is pleased to return to EXPO CHICAGO, with an exciting two-person presentation, featuring new works by Berlin-based artists Pablo Benzo & Stelios Karamanolis, originally from Chile and Greece respectively. Passionate at finding an audience for underseen visionaries, the gallery keeps on amplifying the voice of diverse under-represented groups, such as minority artists coming from small peripheral countries, ever keen on exploring new grounds. 


With figurative paintings immersed into a timeless atmosphere and equally gentle geometrical works bordering abstraction, the presentation involves a series of new works by Benzo and Karamanolis that appear to illustrate the artists’ personal journey through art. In a trance-like state, art is essentially a soul flight; As both artists choose to define themselves as eternal art students, always on the lookout for new senses, places and experiences, these works manage to find their way to Chicago, shipping indirectly from Athens, Berlin, Santiago and the land of the poets, symbolizing the nomadic, non-linear representation of their practice and commenting on the history of painting, self-discovery and cultural immersion.


EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, presents leading international galleries alongside the highest quality platform for contemporary art and culture, hosting 170 leading international exhibitors at Navy Pier’s Festival Hall. The exposition draws upon the city’s rich history as a vibrant international cultural destination, while engaging the region’s contemporary art community and collector base.
