Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]
Pamela Stefanopoulou explores binge eating and its range of interpretations, often characterised by loss of control of the amount of food eaten.

Art or Not? Art has many different forms. It can smell, move, be big, small, or even invisible.

Or can art hold its own and transmit a sense of 'something more' without words to shape it?

Artists of today are not afraid to shop around for culturally diverse icono... [more]
