Maria Filopoulou – Instinct for Water
Greek painter Maria Filopoulou has been working on her latest collection of paintings for the past 18 months and the results are simply stunning. The exhibition has just gone up at the gallery and it feels like summer has finally arrived. The luminous turquoise canvases and flowing waterfalls make you want to jump into the paintings and soak up the sunshine. They not only transform a room but they transform your mood and uplift your spirits.
Maria Filopoulou was born in Athens in 1964 and studied painting in Paris at the Ecole nationale superieure des beaux-arts from 1984-1988. Her works can be found at the National Gallery in Greece and in the Greek Parliament, along with many private museums and collections in Greece and abroad.
We are honoured to have her work on show at the gallery and highly recommend a visit whilst the show is on (until 17th May 2013).
Also check out her work which is on the cover of 'Galleries' magazine (April 2013) and 'Art of England' magazine (May 2013).
