ABOUT THE ARTIST

Biography

Vicky Christou b. 1966

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Vicky Christou (1966-present) immigrated to Canada with her family in 1969.

In 1991, Christou graduated from the Emily Carr College of Art and Design after specializing in painting throughout her studies. The artist explored visual themes of infinity and domestic crafts through the Post Modern form of the grid. A grid of acrylic impasto covers the surface of each work, offering varying glimpses into the layers of colour of the composition beneath.

Through this practice, the artist has created a unique multi-dimensional style of painting that has become synonymous with her studio.
