ATHENA ANASTASIOU

Athena is an art scholar and post graduate from Central St Martins, and is best known for her vibrant and eclectic large scale oil paintings produced from her studio in Dalston, East London. 
She has exhibited in numerous group shows around London, Portugal and Morocco and is a keen advocate for the emerging art scene in London. Athena is the Founder of a pop up Art Gallery and collective called “Meet The Artists” that has represented over 100 emerging artists from London. 
Two areas of exploration for the artist are empowerment and community; how we can unite cultures through the revolutionary tool of ART

 

 "My portrait paintings are continual explorations of colour, form and texture. I am currently investigating how far I can stretch the form whilst still portraying the essence and energy of a person. I am interested in sculpting paint onto smooth surfaces, creating animated fluid portraits. My question is how much paint can I scrape away yet still retain that strong connection between the sitter and the viewer".
