Δeltakappadesign

Δeltakappadesign is an Athens-based collaboration by the twin sisters Dimitra and Katerina Tzivelos – who have come together to share their passion for art and design. Artist Dimitra creates the designs and emblems, while the Interior Designer Katerina gives them ‘life’, transforming the works into distinctive objects of art.

Artist Dimitra Tzivelos, employing a lyrical black-and-white technique, over the last few years has been presenting a series of original work of art and ‘giclee prints’, inspired by Greek folk tradition and architecture, as well as by the timeless beauty of Classical Greece.

A very different source of inspiration comes from Nature and its wildness, the Animal Kingdom, and the Sea World.

Δeltakappadesign is a concept design brand of high aesthetics, premium quality, and available in limited numbers. All Δk’s work, is designed, handcrafted, and produced in Greece.

A few words from the artist Dimitra Tzivelos:

All the designs and the entire process are done by hand.

Once the work has been sketched out, I begin to build the image by breaking it up into smaller sections using extra fine point markers (no. 0.1 – 0.2 – 0.3 -0.5). Each section is then filled out by combining several influences by different artistic styles / forms (i.e. Islamic, Gothic, Ancient Greek, Indian etc.), gradually giving birth to the final artwork. Once the artwork

is complete, it is cut out by hand with a lancet. The cut out piece, is then placed upon a new piece of paper, in order to provide a slight height difference and create a small dimensional illusion

Yakinthi

Yakinthi Stratopoulou is a greek self-taught artist working with a wide variety of materials, experimenting with multiple techniques and colors in an attempt to express the poetic aspect of creation. Emotions are the main characters of this artistic storyline and the way they’re driving her hands to an imaginary journey of drawings, colors, brushes, photos, videos and words many many words. Her art is focused on people, the feelings she gets from the interaction with them, the connection and loss, trying to turn these experiences into abstract shapes, forms, colors, or words along with her own artistic and spiritual process of creation. Figures blended in a dreamlike environment, blue represented as the color of the soul and many faces and bodies hidden in the canvas as different parts of our being are composing deep feelings as images and poems. This is a way for her to communicate the absolute and immediate need of our times, the need to love, feel, and connect as spiritual beings expressing our authentic selves.

Stavros Avgoustides

Stavros Avgoustides is a career diplomat and a self-taught contemporary artist. Born in Cyprus and raised in Greece, he draws inspiration from his professional travels and multicultural experiences.

Art for Stavros Avgoustides is an “escape”: each unique design, treasures its own little narrative; a way of expressing the artist’s inner world; endlessly unravelling his life, as a diary in pigment, absorbing new landscapes and faces, through colour and shape; an internal landscaping, rather, arranging the world as its own fantastic experience.

Through his doodle art, Stavros’ fairytale characters, landscapes and overall designs, seek to inspire, offer hope, converse with, and, ultimately, fascinate the audience.

During his post as the Ambassador of the Republic of Cyprus to Bulgaria (2014-2018), Stavros Avgoustides initiated the Embassy’s «Αrt4Charity» Cultural Events Program and organized a Charity Art Exhibition for UNICEF, showcasing the work of late Bulgarian artist Nikolai Roussev, as well as his personal artwork.

Moreover, along with Bulgarian exploratory photographer Mr. Ventzislav Petrov, launched the “Sofia in Fragments” art project: an open-ended, highly creative and innovating art project, which includes photographs and mixed media contemporary artwork, inspired by the city of Sofia, with all proceeds going to the local “For Our Children Foundation”.

Guided by his principle of “One Creation a Day” and the constant urge to find new ways of expressing his creativity, Stavros is collaborating with other artists and designers, discovering common grounds of creativity, values and artistic aspirations. After all, “art is not what one does, but what one is”.

Elpida Zacharaki

Elpida Zacharaki aka el Vatomouro is a calligraphy artist and graphic designer, born in 1991 in Athens. She studied Art & Design in Akto College and graduated with a Bachelor of first-class honors degree from Middlesex University. From the first year of school, she was involved in typography and letters with a twist in handmade calligraphy techniques.

In 2014 she won the first prize at Athens Portfolio Night, which subsequently opened the door for her participation at Art Directors Club in New York. Upon her return from New York, she began working as a graphic designer within the advertising industry taking on multiple projects for international clients. Alongside her day job, in 2016 at the behest of her mentor and artist Irini Gonou, she started teaching calligraphy at multiple art spaces and festivals in Athens. On 2020 she decided to quit the office job and try her luck in materializing her long dream of becoming an independent artist. Since 2021 she holds a small studio in a full green and birds’ singing area of Athens.

Her work focuses on typo and calligraphy. She prefers to work with analog means: dip pens, brushes, and markers are some of her choices. Besides working with digital design tools, Elpida believes that working with analogue means allows capturing the choreographic authenticity and the spontaneous representation of calligraphy of a unique moment in time on surfaces. She perceives letters as holly symbolic shapes and she studies all greek and medieval manuscripts from the 2nd-century bc onwards, producing new letterforms based on them. For the past five years, Elpida has been captivated by the concept of presenting calligraphy in bigger scales, such as walls and ground, utilizing holistic body movements. Through this practice, she hopes to inspire people to perceive letters beyond the conventional expression means.
