List of products by Artist Maria Filopoulou
Maria Filopoulou was born in 1964 in Athens. She is a painter and one of the most important representatives of contemporary art in Greece. Deep human-centered, she does not create enclosed worlds, but landscapes to let her figures grow. What is so appealing about her pieces is the complete freedom with which the swimmers move; the nude forms have lost their gravity and transform the scene around them into a dream world.
Filopoulou studied painting in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts under Leonardo Cremonini, from 1984 to 1988. She continued with her post-graduate studies at the same school, with a scholarship from the French Government, from 1988 to 1989 (lithography under Αbraham Hadad). Her works are to be found in the National Gallery of Athens, the Greek Parliament, and in private museums and collections in Greece and abroad. She has had 20 solo exhibitions and has participated in many group exhibitions as well, held in Athens, London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Venice, New York, Florida, Melbourne, Miami, Beijing, Istanbul etc.
