Art Antoniadis is a smallish shop on Zaimi and they cater primarily for painters – it is the only shop that carries a selection of large easels. Reading the reviews of the other art shops I feel like I’m doing Antoniadis an injustice because I don’t have so much to write, but the reason for it is plain and simple that I hardly use oils and recently haven’t used acrylics much either.
So, what have they got? (Occasionally they also do weekend open-air painting lessons, by the way.)
They have almost a full selection of both Van Gogh and Rembrandt half pans and also Van Gogh tubes if I’m not mistaken.
Actually I’m not even sure if they had any of those – might have been a few basic children’s sets, but definitely no more.
Gouache, tempera and acrylics
Everything from Royal Talens – full Rembrandt line and full Amsterdam line.
Same as acrylics, a full selection from Royal Talens – Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Art Creation and Cobra.
Amsterdam acrylic markers – nice touch, because I don’t think any other store carries this line.
Occasionally they have some brayers.
Paper and canvas
A small selection of blocks, mainly for sketching. They have different types of canvas both in rolls and stretched and also prepare stretched canvases for order.
Different types of large ones.
