Vivid colour, deep emotional outbursts and women as the core of her inspiration are some distinctive elements of her work.
Evgenia Grypari Paintings
My work has autobiographical elements, drawing inspiration from deep emotional experiences and thoughts on love, heartbreak, self-discovery and honing the power of strong feelings. At the same time, the paintings embrace a great sense of female empowerment. My inspiration is female portraiture with realistic elements which contrasts with the pop surrealism and abstract elements of the backgrounds. As my art perception grows, the spectrum of themes broadens and for now my inspiration lies within deep blue, crystal clear waters, mermaids and starry nights.
