Chrysa Koukoura

I continue to explore the limits of working in fine-line pen on paper and gold-foil detailing; All pieces are drawn and embellished by hand and can take anything up to 80 hours. My current works are heavily influenced by graphic design from both the art-deco and psychedelic era, continuously playing with contrast, bold lines and shape to transport the viewer to somewhere more evocative and free.

I love the simplicity and restrictiveness of working in black and white, at allows me to bring something else out of a piece that wouldn’t necessarily have been there had colour been involved.
