“He was the most snobby man who ever passed through Greece”
Giannis Bezos gave an interview to Esquire magazine, who spoke, among other things, about his artistic career and his knowledge of Tsitsanis.
Were you “jealous” of any of the jobs you saw this year?
So far no but I’m generally not jealous, I admire. We must restore admiration. It contains the question “how is this done?” There is a general tendency from the world not to admire easily, he wants to bring you down, to his measures. As you know, I categorically deny. I want to stay on my own and whoever wants can follow. Let me explain how I mean it: They sometimes say why don’t the great singers of the past exist? But why do we no longer admire the singers. We think we can become like them.
Is this how the expenditure of modern “celebrities” can be explained?
Yes, they are not popular heroes. Tsitsanis was a popular hero. But, because I have met him, of course he was the most snobby man who ever passed through Greece. He did not approach him, but he was popular. What does that mean? That he testified to his truth and left behind a work that we are restoring afterwards. Whenever we are in pain, we cry, we rejoice, we remember them, not today. We demolish these “for pleasure” at the first opportunity.
