We live in a world where we see hundreds of faces every day, each with a different expression and mood. Tired and sad eyes lost in their thoughts and the problems created by stressful city life. All these faces are imprinted in our subconscious and appear out of nowhere in our dreams or in some incomprehensible thought.
By visualising these faces, the artist wanted to convey the stress that is an inherent part of the city and the people living in them. In doing so, she touches on the very important issue of the lack of balance between private life and work in urban societies . In an interesting and contrasting way, the artist thus presents the problem of overwork.
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
