Chryssa Verghi

b.1959 –

Chryssa Verghi is a contemporary Greek artist who captures the essence of the Greek landscape – the inspirational setting for the ancient masters – in her powerful paintings. Born in Athens in 1959, Verghi studied painting at the National Superior School of Fine Arts in Athens and completed her studies in Painting at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts under Pierre Carron.

Her deep relationship to the sea is very prominent in her work. Not only is water her main subject, but Verghi’s understanding of how water reflects light lifts her out of the class of landscape painters and puts her directly in the line of succession of Impressionist art.
