Leda Alexopoulou was born in Athens (Greece) in 1972. She studied in both Athens Schools of Economics and Business (1996) and in Athens School of Fine Arts (2004). She has a diploma in Marketing and Management and a diploma with honors in Painting. In the Athens School of Fine Arts she also studied Sculpture, Stage Design and Graphic Design. She has exhibited her work in both group and solo exhibitions in Greece and abroad. She lives in Athens and in Crete. Themes, shapes and colours in her work are influenced by anything that captures her eyes and challenges her imagination. A constant through-line, though, is the inspiration she receives from the Greek land, which she finds harnesses a unique energy that creates a colour palette with a distinctive light and a special sense of rawness. Her diverse work includes drawings, paintings, sculpture, ceramics, design objects and land art. Combined they illustrate both her sophisticated aesthetic, as well as her essential need for creation in and of itself.
Vassilis Zois Vlassis (Red Zoo) was born in Thessaloniki, grew up in Heraklion, Crete, where he lives and works. He studied in England, is a graduate of Civil Engineer Msc at the Imperial College of London. His love and passion for painting began from his student years. His works are characterized by transcendence. Abstract expressionistic elements, with color tension and lineage (Action Painting, Tachisme, Color Field) are observed. In his works one image creates the next one and in one form another sparks out, which are imprinted through an ardent color feast. Most artworks can be seen on all four sides. The depiction of his works does not stop at the boundaries of the frame but continues on its edges. It uses various materials (acrylic, oil and mixed materials) and various techniques. His inspiration comes from personal experiences – emotions, social stimuli and social diversity, which are transformed into his works and show his constant concern. Through this unceasing worry, “Red Zoo” was born in a constant struggle with himself.
