"I'm trying to find my truth. I love people and light. The colors and the night. Lydia and life..."
Lydia Z was born and raised in Athens, Hellas. She has lived and worked for the last 8 years in the UK and during the last period she has been living in Norway with her family. Even though Lydia painted from a young age, she studied Business Management and Fashion Design. Lydia worked many years as a fashion designer and a photographer. She started painting once again when the light and colors that she had inside of her wanted to breathe again and express themselves. Her feelings were split on the canvas. Her fears all red, her hopes blue, the world around her black. Walking through the road of colors trying to find her truth. She has studied next to great painters (BORGIAS COLLEGE OF FINE ART & DESIGN, ΑRTe , School of Art) to try and tame color. In vain! Free forms, big brushes, figures from Ancient Greece dipped in an abstract reality, switching back and forth between the memories of the past and the dreams of the future. Lydia is a member of UNESCO Art, Literature and Science of Greece. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions, (Ιtaly, Turkey, Greece, France) while a lot of her artworks are in private collections.
