As Maria Kotsamani points out in her book on the artist: 'The suitcases, established as an emblem by the 70's, attests most unequivocally to the artist's desire to travel. From this point on, depending on the itinerary, the trip takes over the rest of his symbols, always retaining a cheerful, oneiric quality (...) For Akrithakis, the notion of travel is always expressed by the desire to escape the real world, to make the transition to another whose geographic co-ordinates he is constantly seeking. Objectively speaking, his is a utopian journey, a trip not to be found on the map of reason, but one accompanying the logic of dreams.' (Maria Kotsamani ed., Akrithakis, Athens, 1997, pp. 29-30).
