Chrysa Koukoura's DetailingIllustration // Thursday, 20 Feb 2014
With a slight hesitancy in working with color, Chrysa Koukoura uses fine pen on paper with meticulous detail, her aim being to draw the viewer in for a closer look. She loves the simplicity and the restrictiveness of working in black and white, as it requires her to bring something extra out of an image that wouldn’t usually be there had a color been involved. Koukoura has been drawn into nature as a starting point for her drawings. Having just left London, her home for the past seven years, she is looking forward to seeing how her ever changing surroundings over the next year will influence her work.
