The exhibition includes thirty paintings on canvas. Each painting presents one of the thirty letters of the Cyrillic alphabet and is accompanied by a text, written by the artist. The exhibition is the first artistic presentation of the subject in Greece, touching so both the two worlds, the Byzantine and the Slavic, as the interesting and quirky relationships and interactions which arose from their contact.

The exhibition is a co-organization of the Museum of Byzantine Culture, the Consulate General of the Republic of Bulgaria in Thessaloniki, the Department of Balkan, Slavic and Oriental Studies, University of Macedonia and the Municipal Gallery of Plovdiv and will last until 30 June.
