A Greek born artist with a distinctive detailed way of painting. Drawn entirely by hand, her paintings have been often described as painted embroideries. Irene Vergitsi is no stranger to the creative fields. She has been named a “creative chameleon” and has tackled from 2D and 3D techniques to mosaic and ceramics, digital print, illustration, product design, animation and fashion textiles. With a vast experience of over 15 years her incongruous intertwining geometrical shapes and lines form her identity and express her ‘out-of-the-box’ way of thinking.
