Elefteria Vlavianos

Elefteria Vlavianos was born in Zimbabwe of mixed Armenian and Greek heritage. She is an abstract painter who’s visual practice has developed through an ongoing investigation into the process abstraction, its vocabulary and conventions as a visual translation of a displaced cultural aesthetic. Her paintings draw on her multi-cultural Armenian and Greek heritage. Imagery in her paintings is derived from her current research of thirteenth century Armenian Manuscript Paintings and the tradition of Armenian textile crafts. Continued themes within her practice and paintings, are time, silence, presence and memory as they tie into a dialogue between representation, visibility and abstract painting. In this framework issue such a colour, structure, and mark making are key concerns as they translate across time, space and between two idioms in painting.

Elefteria has a PhD in Painting from ANU school of Art and Design, and has a BA with honours (Politics) from the University of Adelaide. She has exhibited extensively in both solo and group exhibitions. Her achievements include; being selected for the Artist in Residency program, Chateau Orquevaux – France – 2023, a finalist in the 2021 Grace Cossington Smith Art Award, a full APA scholarship, selection in the 18th National Textile Biennial – 2008, Capo Emerging Artist Award – 2008 and the inaugural Embassy of Spain Traveling Scholarship -2002. Elefteria is currently on artist residency at the Atelier Chateau Orquevaux in France.
