Artist Bio
Athens Greece artist Chrishanthi has had a passion for art from an early age. This was made quite clear to her mother, who would have to drag the young Chrishanthi kicking and screaming to school as she yelled “why do I have to go school, I already know I want to be an artist! . . . 
With the support of teachers who allowed her to draw she much preferred little girls ,small animals, it would seem Chrishanthi would have her way. “I was always drawing and cartooning as a youngster and all the way through college.” Her style and sense of sensitive were heavily influenced with smoothness of Lolita girl”
After studying Painting, Graphics and Visual Design and working in the industry, spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen,as children clothes designer, she picked up some gouache paints for the first time. Chrishanthi was able to hone her skills, learning the art and techniques of gouache ,acrylic painting . Major influences include Magritte,Monet and contemporary artists of the pop-surrealist movement, such as Joe Sorren, Mark Ryden and Nicoletta Ceccoli.
Chrishanthi currently spends her time predominately painting new works and commissions, freelancing, and has aspirations of creating/illustrating children’s books. Recently she has also started dabbling in the pop art of bringing her characters to life in the form of sculpture.
“In my current work I continue to explore surreal worlds inhabited with my uniquely
bizzare creatures, cute critters and macabre girls. My imagination and sense of life are a huge part of my work!”
