“ My name is Fotini Pappa and I live in Athens, Greece. Painting for me is like poetry, a need of expression, a way to share my feelings and I am pursuing it intensively since 1997 as self-taught.
A great piece of my work concerns projects inspired by poems. I use acrylic, watercolors and mostly pencil which I particularly love. My favorite subjects are flowers and women. With my series "Flower Woman" I have participated in several exhibitions in my country and internationally.
The series speaks about violence against women.
My first participation in an exhibition was in December 2013, in Athens, by winning in a competition organized by Energy Athens at the European Center for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Since then, I have participated in four solo exhibitions and have been taking part in numerous group shows. In August 2015, I took part in the Kefalonia International Art Festival in the Municipal Picture Gallery of Kefalos. In March 2017 I took part in the International Women's Art Exhibition 2017 in art galleries Vithika Art in India. In June 2017 my works ''WILD ROSES'' and ''Peace'', were published in Spotlight 1 and Spotlight 6 Contemporary Art Magazine by Circle Foundation for the Arts. In June 2017 and March 2018 I participated in ARTBOX.PROJECT Basel 1.0 in Switzerland and in New York.
In October 2017 and 2018 I exhibited in Athens at the History Museum of the University in the framework of the 7th-8th World Philosophical Forum. In October I also took part in the International held in Olympia during the Olympic Games. In total, I have been in 70 group and 4 solo exhibits. Finally, some of my paintings have been covers in poetry books and some of them have won International awards in international web competitions.”
