Maria Razi

Maria Razi

Maria Papachristou Razi, is a visual artist who is in a category by herself! I mean that although she is far from public relations and intense exposure from the relevant media, she is nevertheless very active and consistent with her work. With many solo exhibitions, mainly in Athens, she always makes her presence particularly noticeable. She started her works with a mixed technique, using collages with fabrics always mixed with acrylics and paints of many colors… In her latest work, which she now presents at the PERITECHNON Karteris gallery, she only has paintings and while previously the protagonists of her works were animals and birds now there is also a strong human element. Everyday modern images, always in nature, emerging through leaves, trees, branches, children, adults, drinking their coffee, girls in their jackets walking… Maria Razi has her own personal way of filtering the reality. She has found her own communication codes! To make use of the everyday and the unexpected! But always, always modestly, discreetly and above all dreamy!
