About Chrys Roboras


Chrys Roboras is a well-known Greek artist who was born and raised in Australia, and now lives and works for many years in Athens. Her paintings have an anthropocentric direction; she loves portraiture as it gives her the opportunity to study the human soul. She also focuses on the landscape, which is always a painting challenge for Chrys.
She studied at Seaforth Tafe College in Sydney, Australia, where she graduated in 1992. She continued her studies in Greece, through AKTO (Middlesex University-England) from where she graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Technology (Bachelor of Fine Arts and Technology with First Class Honors).
In addition, she studied painting with teacher Tassos Misouras, and Visual communication with Nikos Navridis and Katerina Apostolidou.
She has had 17 solo exhibitions; in Athens, Thessaloniki, Paros, New York, Toronto, London, Lugano, Los Angeles, Sydney and Brooklyn. Chrys has participated in Art Athina, Revolution Art Fair, Parallax Art Fair, Biennale of Chianciano, Biennale of Beijing, Biennale of Santorini, Scope Art Fair, Red Dot, Design Art Fair, Emerging Artist Award-Dubai, Art Takes Paris, The Artist Project and The Other Art Fair by Saatchi.
She has shown her work in more than 60 group exhibitions around the world. Her works have received international awards while many are in international art catalogs (for example, the catalogs "International Contemporary Masters Volume 5", "The book Hidden Treasures Art 2014", ArtTakes Miami 2012, 2014, 2015. In 2013 Serendipity magazine published a tribute in her work.
Her work is found at the Museum of Fine Arts in Las Vegas and in many private collections in Greece and abroad.
