Irini Drossou, painter

The artist Irini Drossou will be exhibiting her new work. She is a restless mind that experiments once again in an effort to find new means of expression. She has proven with her previous work "Hephaistites" made from lava, that she knows how to risk and innovate at the same time. With her new work she makes a "loud" comeback by using a mixed technique with materials such as acrylics and lava on plexiglass.

Born in Imerovigli of the island of Santorini, she lives and works between Santorini and Athens.

Irini Drossou studied painting next to Takis Schinias and Yiouli Gikopoulou. She has also learned the art of religious painting next to Adamantia Giannopoulou.

This is her second individual exhibition on the island she was born. Her first solo exhibition took place at the Belonio Centre, at Fira in the island of Santorini, entitled "Hfaistites".

She has taken part in various group exhibitions and has been awarded by UNESCO.
