Greek Landscape by Irini Karpikioti

 

Where did the inspiration come from for this piece?

Greece is famous worldwide due to its unique combination of sunlight, sea, and islands – the magnificent Greek nature. Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons when nature in Greece blossoms, the sea becomes tranquil and even more magical with careless sailboats catching the gentle breeze in the distance.

Struck by the stunning beauty of the sunny Greek coast and colourful charm of blooming bougainvillaea, I paint my artworks to share my joy and happiness with the whole world.

What is the creative process when creating your vibrant colourful art? 

A long time ago, I have fallen in love with the sea and flowers and have always painted them separately; now I combine my two passions and here I am – proud and happy to present my new collection, including ‘Greek Landscape’.

 

How long would this work have taken you? 

Once I know what I am going to paint, I start painting and I forget about the time. As such an artwork might take from a couple of weeks to literally an instance to finish.
