The artist’s artwork depicts her vision of camping in Greece. The heartwarming graphic with the caption ‘Love you to the moon and back’ depicts a naked woman and her cat lying naked on the beach – truly free of worries and constraints.
Katerina Fotaki writes: “What is more beautiful than sleeping by the sea under the stars and waking up with the sunrise and the cool sand at your feet? Summer in Greece for me means camping on an isolated beach with loved ones and swimming in the endless blue.” A nice cornflower colour floods the entire work, in fact. It makes you feel the influence of the sea and the night, sinking into them while looking at the aforementioned colour. The form of the piece is reminiscent of the technique of woodcut or linocut, which enhances the pleasure in viewing the work.
graphic / visual artist
Greek artist raised in the wilderness of Crete. She studied and graduated in Athens with a degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication. She currently works in Berlin, which inspires her to create more illustrations. Her circumstances growing up made her a nature lover, but she has always been curious about the craziness of urban life. She is inspired by the environment she lives in and the emotions that surround her. For her, illustration is a way to express her dreams and feelings in a surreal way. She likes to create faces and figures, focusing more on their different emotions and expressions. Katerina’s paintings never run out of colours, as she has learned to live in colourful cities with a strong multicultural character. Her works can be described as psychedelic and definitely surreal.
“My aim is to capture as much emotion as possible in a way that makes the viewer notice the image for a few minutes. Through my paintings I want to evoke positive emotions, but sometimes I like to evoke a mysterious absurdity.” – Katerina Fotaki
