Tina Karageorgi

Tina Karageorgi was born in 1959 in Athens, Greece. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Athens and continued her studies at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London, UK and the St. Martin’s School of Art in London, UK.
In her works the multi-layered composition of transparencies builds considerable visual and semantic depth. Using the subtlety of an Oriental technical and visual “language”, through transparencies and brush marks, she creates an imagery, where meaning lies within an “aesthetic” image. In her latest work she has introduced neon light not merely as a sign but as an element that enhance the depth of the painting and punctuate its narrative.
She has presented her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad, such as the Nees Morfes Gallery in Athens, the Institute of Greek Civilization in Berlin, Germany, the Art Fair Zurich, Switzerland, the KIAF in Seoul, Korea, the Benaki Museum in Athens and the MoCA Shanghai, China. She has also worked as Art Director for the film “Black Out “, by Menelaos Karamagiols, and was nominated for the Award at the International Film Festival in Thessaloniki, Greece (1998). She also designs and works with old furniture and writes essays.
