Markella Korai

I am a painter, my practice is based on drawing; abstract drawing with colour. I am very passionate about drawing, it is a way of thinking for me. There is always a conflict between abstraction and figuration in every sketch. I am using the technique of automatic drawing, to create movement and metamorphosis in my images.

I believe that drawing, combined with painting, can create a new image, a new perspective of the world around me. The concept of a narrative is also very important in my work. The influences that inform these works are rich, from everyday life setting ,memories, acrobats, dancers and film stills .
