MEET ELENI DORI OF ITALY
Born in Athens, Greece, Eleni Dori has lived abroad most of her life. Trained in Fine Art at the Central School of Art and Design and The Slade School, University College London, Eleni now lives in Turin, Italy. She prefers working in oil-based media which, given their drying time, provide more possibilities for changes throughout the artistic process. For Eleni Dori, colour gains its strength by the way it’s applied to the canvas and by the way of transparency. The colour that is next to it, above it, and under it, determines and influences its perception. Spending most of her time in her studio, Eleni notes that no one prepares an artist for the loneliness of the profession.
