Greek painter Ira Tsantekidou, born in 1967 is an internationally recognized artist. ” It is very rare to discover such a fine and educated artist such as Ira. Her paintings have the most unusual technique and style that I have ever come across. I am sure, that after one has viewed her paintings, the memory of them will stay with one forever.
The artist pays a lot of attention to women and their female flirtations and habits. They are always beautiful and ironic and you will notice that they are always accompanied by either an animal or an object. The use of different materials will make one feel the picture is more of a sculpture than a painting. The reaction of light on the canvass often gives the painting a very lifelike quality. It is amazing how, with the use of earthy, warm metallic and gold colors, the paintings become as romantic as they do interesting, giving an aura of contentment and happiness, therefore making them possible to be displayed in either an office or a lounge.” — J. Forster, London
