Enter the world of Markella Lousidis, an emerging young artist from Greece who will present a selection from her series, ATHENAS (ΑΘΕΝΑΣ). With this show, Lousidis invites you to explore Athena, not just the ancient goddess of war and wisdom, but the Athena that exists in all of us.

With her special blend of beauty, passion and trauma, the artist excites the imagination by weaving ancient myths into the realities and challenges of Generation Z. ATHENAS (ΑΘΕΝΑΣ) expresses a world where patterns and female form merge with Greek mythology as each ATHENA offers up a unique viewpoint on our ever-changing times while hinting at deeper emotions as they collide on each canvas.

Step into Lousidis’ world and let her art allow you to explore a glimpse of her world in a safe space where beauty, trauma and fantasy fuse with our myths and challenges.

MARKELLA LOUSIDIS – BIOGRAPHY

Born in 2004 in Athens, Greece Markella has been painting since before she could walk. She joined her first international Biennale (Chianciano) in 2015 (age 7), followed by the London Biennale in 2011 and returned to the Chianciano in 2015 just before a group show at the Venice Art Factory. Markella’s work has appeared in various international galleries and literary publications. More recently, she has joined group shows in London, Rome and Venice. Between 2022 and 2023, Markella has lived and studied in Paris, Madrid and Belin. Currently, Markella is in Florence learning Fresco and ancient painting techniques. An independent free-thinker, Markella is known for her diverse style and intense universal take on life. Her work often reflects key current affairs such as gender and identity challenges. Her latest works are focused on a neo-Renaissance vibe where beauty is fused with doses of Greek mythology alongside inner and outer turmoil and trauma.

“Life is full of diversity – challenges, obstacles and moments of reprieve. I understand and can reflect on those moments best when I am lost in my work.” Markella Lousidis
