Biography

Daphne Anastassiou

 

Daphne was born in Viña del Mar (Chile) in 1955.  Belongs to a Greek family that has always maintained strong bonds with the artistic world, since she was a child, the art manifestations were part of her life and a source of inspiration for her creative development.  Her higher education started at the Pierce College in Athens (Greece), continued at the Alvescot College in London (England) and finished at the Universidad Catòlica of Santiago (Chile), where she got her Psychology degree in 1980.

Her first approaches to art can be found back in her childhood, working at her mother’s atelier with enamels over metal and different techniques with acids.  Afterwards, she tried with ceramics (1982).  Her first canvas was born in 1991 and since 2006 she is completely devoted to painting.

 

The artist uses different materials such as oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolour, painting on canvases, wood,  paper and sometimes paperboard.

 

Her first solo exhibition named Agapi (love in Greek), was performed in 2009 at the Artespacio Gallery in Santiago (Chile), where she showed pieces created between 1991 and 2009.

By the years 2009 and 2010 she exhibited at Feria Expotrastiendas in Buenos Aires (Argentina), represented by Argentinarte Gallery, in 2010 she exhibited at the Feria Ch.

During 2011 she did her first solo exhibition at the Colette Dubois Gallery in Paris (France), who represents her in France since that time; that same year she exhibited at the Parallax Art Fair, organized at the Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall, in London (England).

In 2013 she did a solo exhibition at the Gallery Colette Dubois in Paris, closing the year with Sacred Dimensions, a new solo exhibition at Artespacio Gallery in Santiago (Chile).
