Konstantina Krikzoni is a Greek artist, based in London.
Her practice manifests a space between the figurative and the abstract, where bodily forms transcend and transform. Working with oil paint, watercolour, casts made of rubber and textiles, she creates organic shape distortions and explores the constraints and liberation of human existence.
She studied Painting at the School of Visual and Fine Arts of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2015) and Mathematics at the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics of the same university (2010).
She is a recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant (2020) and of the NEON Foundation for Culture and Development scholarship (2020/21, 2021/22) and she was shortlisted for the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) scholarship (2021) and the Chadwell award (2022) in London, UK.
She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
