If you’re into art or just love stylish installations, just don’t leave the island before visiting this shop. Owners are very polite. Prices are a little bit on the expensive side but totally worth it.

Hi Travis, Thank you very very much the kind and honest words, we really appreciate it! We love to be casual but professional with our clients and visitors, we believe it's the most human way to approach our business, plus it's who we are as people. Talking about art comes second in comparison to sales, always. Any time you are back on the island we would love to see you again in our space, take care until then and thanks again! All the best, Alex Kypris Director

We bought a piece of art from here many years ago, after a house move and re installation of our bronze fishes we managed to break one of the fish tails.
Emailed the gallery and within a few days we were able to put up our replacement piece. Alex and his staff were so helpful and kind, could not recommend this gallery more!

MATI Art Gallery is a MUST visit location if you are visiting Santorini. The artwork is contemporary and timeless. Mr Kypris and his team are extremely professional and I've purchased art in person in the gallery in Santorini as well as remotely through their website. Throughout the entire process, the team is very professional and the shipping process is seamless. The artwork is delivered safely through DHL, and the packaging leaves nothing to chance.
Mr Kypris makes beautiful art that captures the beauty of the Aegean Sea, and the natural movement of fish like I've never seen before. Having bought 5 pieces of art over the last 15 years, I'm very comfortable recommending MATI Art Gallery. Even if you are not intending to buy art, it's definitely worth a visit.

You know how much we appreciate your support over the years and we know that our art goes to people who love it and will take care of it. This in itself means a lot to us! It was a pleasure meeting you (even if it's virtual), and I will be more than happy to share a bottle when you visit next. Take care and many many thanks again, doing business with has been equally smooth! All the best, Alex

We went to this gallery and fell in love with some of the pieces. I decided to surprise my husband with a gift or some artwork for his birthday. Diana was most helpful in helping me to select the pieces according to my budget and arranging quotes for shipping to Australia. She made the whole process so easy. I can't wait for the shipment to arrive!

I discovered Mati during a holiday in Santorini some years ago. Since from the beginning I thought that it was fantastic.
Few weeks ago I've bought a Christmas present contacting Mati by email.
Mrs Diana was very kind and very professional, she gave me excellent suggestions .
The article is arrived very fast and it was also more beautifull than in the picture.
My present has been very appreciated!
Thank you Mati, especially thank you Diana!!!

I can be intimidated by visiting places that are beyond what I can afford, but myself and my companions were welcomed so warmly upon entering this gallery. Not only was the art elegant, whimsical, inspiring, creative and stunning, its use as handrails, knobs and so forth was also indicative of an artist who sees their art as more than something to place on a wall or table. I could have spent a lot of time just admiring the pieces and allowing myself to be drawn to my inner space feeling the communication between the art and my own changing perceptions and emotions. It is small for those who might expect rooms and rooms. This is located in a town, on an island in Greece. I loved it.
