OLGA TZIRAKIAN

I was born in Athens in 1960 and I am still living in Greece. My country has been my unfailing source of inspiration as I keep transferring on canvas the sensation that Greek light transmits to me. Due to these intense transmissions, I penetrate deeper searching for the inner monologues of my heroes and for the secret dialogues between couples. Dialogues, though believed to be secret, become unconcealed when they reach our ears, even without sound. Since my very first lessons in 1980 at the Greek-American Union, at the Painting department, I was addicted to the world of the colour palette. It is this wonderful addiction I still want to experience.
