Penelope’s palette: A Greek Australian Art Odyssey by Efrossini Chaniotis


Thu May 23 2024 at 11:00 am to 06:00 pm


33 Angas St, Adelaide SA 5000, Australia | Adelaide, SA

Experience a profound connection to Greece with a unique collection of sculptures and paintings in the heart of the city for 10 days only!
Greek-Australian contemporary artist Efrossini Chaniotis will be sharing a vibrant and spirited collection of her artistic adventures in her hometown, Adelaide, for the first time!

Efrossini’s art is person centered, vibrant, expressive and narrative in nature, drawing on childhood experiences of storytelling, mythology and a deep appreciation for her Hellenic background.
She retells myths and generates new ones using painted sculptures and canvas paintings in a unique style that combines Byzantine iconography with an expressive palette influenced by modern European art.

Join Efrossini as she narrates The Fisherman and Mermaid’s Tale, and her Wishing Tree story.
With her Modern Icons, she creates a unique genre of art that draws inspiration from the bittersweet emotions of sadness and nostalgia for Greece. Additionally, she pays homage to Cycladic art and her father's birthplace, Mykonos, through her beautifully crafted sculptures.
