About The Artwork

There is always something for me to tell about the summers of the past. I used to wait for them as an opportunity of an important change. The summer when I was looking for a new house, the summer when I had exams, the summer when I broke up and –of course- when I was on holidays. Through the years I realized that while talking about the one or the other summer, I was opening the way to adulthood. After the summers had moved to the memory space, they kept still and became univocal. That is why my childhood summer is cool and blue with the scent of jasmine ; my teenage summer is stressful, noisy, black-and-white . Later, the summer turned into a hot, salty, yellow one while I only cared about my freedom. I don’t have anything to say about the summers of today, yet I wish to be there, ……… totally reconciled .

I was born by Greek parents in Zambia and moved to Greece at the age of three. I came across art when I was 24 years old. Since then, an endless relationship has been developed . After graduating from the Athens School of Fine Arts (2003), I was given the opportunity to hold five solo exhibitions in Greece and participate in numerous group exhibitions in my home country and abroad . The human has always been a rich source of inspiration for me. Even at the times when I paint still life or a landscape, I somehow, somewhere, draw the silhouette of a person . The human consists the scenery which characterizes the society itself. If you wish to delve into eras, look into people. Just a glance of theirs can answer any of the Whys, the Hows, the Wheres and the Whens . My preference for the portraits has probably been developed because I always want to understand myself, …….. to understand the others, …….myself into the others, …..the others into the others. There is also the pursuit of the look. The struggle to illustrate the glimpse you believe that reveals one’s mystery and a blue dot or a slant line are enough to transform them to someone else. However, it is not only the look . To my belief, the way the inner human processes are reflected on every unintentional motion of the back, or gesture is totally fascinating. It is absolutely charming the way the conditions, like puppeteers, lead the human body. The thoughts accompanied by the time collaborate quietly while constantly sculpting our outline. In the end, as much as the person tries to avoid, hide or reveal their deepest ego, the thoughts have already sketched their figures .
