Palm Tree Gallery are pleased to introduce Greek artist, Stella Kapezanou.

About

Stella Kapezanou, an exciting young Greek artist, studied Painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) where she was awarded an honorary scholarship. She gained another scholarship to the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich in 2013 and again under a scholarship, she gained an MA in Fine Arts from Chelsea College of Arts, London. She is the recipient of the Clyde & Co Emerging Star Award, 2017 and in the same year she was shortlisted for The Solo Show and secured the Frank Bowling Scholarship, 2017.


Her lavish use of bold, pop art colour and contrast, set against scenes of contemporary pleasure-seeking, consistently strike an optimistic and sometimes opulent tone. Beaches, palm trees, blue skies and rich floral motifs are often the backdrop to arresting depictions of ordinary people in ordinary situations.


And it is the people she depicts which represent the real story, adding darkness and complexity to the confident, cheerful tone. This ambiguity raises unanswered questions, making her work not only instantly arresting, but begs for interpretation. The contrast between the stylised, high impact representation of the setting and the ordinary people participating in the western consumer dream, represent a powerful commentary on western society and its social fabric.
