RIA ALEXANDROU

About

Born:                1990

Hometown:   Agrinio, Greece

Lives:              Limassol, Cyprus

 

Ria's work is an exploration of landscapes, paying close attention to the structure of space and time through stratifications, textures , lines and patterns. This idea of strata, of layers and images seen through time, it's similar to how we view and experience the world today through modern technology: not as a single reality, but  rather as multiple realities in parallel. 

 

She expresses imagery using figurative yet primitive illustrations in a strikingly abstract format. She encourages the viewer into self-exploration of the psyche, linking us back to our primitive roots and senses. 

 

She works with several mediums and using different techniques. Many of her artworks utilize both sides of the canvas or cloth in order to achieve the desired results. She prefers working on large-scale paintings, as this allows more freedom and space to create her visual explorations.

 

In addition to her artistic explorations, she is an active and contributing member of her community. In the year of 2015, she became a founding member of a non-profit organization called ‘Panic Soup’, an initiative with a mission to enhance and reinvent the current artistic and culture scene of the city.
