Artist: Anna Gerolymatou / Άννα Γερολυμάτου
About the Artist
Born in Athens now based in Brussels, Anna Gerolymatou has attended courses in painting and drawing in Athens, drawing lessons, composition and decoration at the Fine and Applied Arts department at the Royal Academy of Brussels, as well as workshops in mixed media and encaustic techniques in Brussels.
She holds a BA in Management and Organizational Behavior (the American College of Athens) and has attended courses on History of Art.
She has always strived to go beyond verbal communication and empower her feelings and artistic expression. After a life time of artistic endeavours, she have discovered her niche though a completely personal technique in collages – mixed media, each with a narrative open to interpretation by diverse viewers. Triggering an emotional state of no specific memories, the artworks are framed within a past era and manifest as an attempt to recreate it.
Her inspiration comes from a desire to highlight beauty by combining finesse, elegance and grace of an artefact created by mixed media. The ‘Belle Époque’ and ‘Art Deco’ periods have been the main periods of her inspiration.
Her approach takes a variety of routes using different kinds of paper, acrylics, inks, fabrics, found images, coloured pencils and crayons, stencils and many others.
- Fédération Nationale de la Culture Nationale for her participation at the ART EN CAPITAL 2015 (Grand Palais).
- Certificate of Excellence for her artwork participating at the 21st Art Vita Competition for exhibiting at the ARTEXPO New York 2017.
