Lydia Zioga was born and raised in Athens, Greece, though the last few years she has been living in the UK. Even though from a young age she was painting, she studied Business Management and Fashion design. In the past she has worked many years as a fashion designer and a photographer. She started painting once again when the light and colors that she had inside of her wanted to breathe again and express themselves. Her feelings were split on the canvas. Her fears all red, her hopes blue, the world around her black. Walking through the road of colors trying to find her truth. She has studied next to great painters ( BORGIAS COLLEGE OF FINE ART & DESIGN, ΑRTe Εικαστικό Εργαστήρι Ζωγραφικής ) to try and tame the colors. In vain! Free forms, big brushes, figures from Ancient Greece dipped in an abstract reality, switching back and forth between the memories of the past and the dreams of the future.
She is a member of UNESCO Art, Literature and Science of Greece.
She has participated in numerous team exhibitions, while a lot of my artworks are in private collections.
