Focused on Creativity

Stella Voulgaraki-Viopoulos

Stella Viopoulos was born in Thessaloniki, Greece and graduated with a degree
in Economics from the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki. After her studies,
Viopoulos opened her own businesses, but in parallel, she always continued to
paint. Eventually, she decided to completely focus on her art. She attended a private
Design school in Thessaloniki, while she received training from the talented painter,
Stelios Mavromattes and then went on to continue her own research for an individual
technique, which would express her unique character, better.

Stella works in an abstract, mixed manner, using stucco and acrylic colours on canvas.
Her main inspiration comes from her environment, which every season creates a
different and outstanding combination of images and colours. When she paints she
has the feeling that her spirit conquers her material, which guides her and gives form
to her paintings throughout the alternation of her own feelings. The most of her
paintings are scenes, which passing through a plethora of feelings, ideas and thoughts,
get printed on the canvas, becoming spontaneously transformed. In some cases, the
same motif gets printed under a different light and weather or other times throughout
reversal reflections. It could be described as a thoroughly accident, in which the world
of accident, hides a conscious decision of colours and direction of the brush and the
spatula. Nothing is either flat, or colourless. Even the refusal, the infelicity, the reject
are standing out from the canvas and become more real by the use of stucco.

Her expressionistic scenes have vivid experiential clues of her personal life, have

favourite and reborn colours, which have been optically experienced. Her nearly
autobiographical paintings, in which the colour and the terrain show her own reality.
Painting expresses everything that makes her happy, everything that hurts her and
everything that depresses her.
