About Us

“Akron” was created out of love and respect for our country’s history and art heritage. Our passion has forced us to deepen and systematically study the mentality behind the artworks that were created in ancient Greece, in order to come up with innovative ideas on how to revive them through our reproductions and make meaningful premium quality artworks for our clients. Each and every one of our art pieces is purely handcrafted using exceptional materials and a lot of taste.
