MARINA KOUTSOSPYROU

Collection

All my works are oils on canvas, depicting figures of figurative painting integrated into space and bearing several messages within symbolic places. I am trying to get the viewer to feel, read the symbols and their meaning perhaps reflect. Pictures with a lot of emotions, memories, dressing up the dream with the real. Also I love to paint the correlation between light and shade with chromatic  qualities. I invite you to share my own perspective of things through my creations. My inspiration to take on everything that can mobilize me to create such as travel pictures, the hero of people. The truth of each artwork is important. A truth that emerges from a deep inner path.
