Behind the scenes


Flaming Hot,

Acrylics, watercolour and lipstick on canvas 80.0 × 90.0 cm

This painting features a sculptural figure against an abstracted grid background with lipstick accents, blending influences from ancient marble sculptures of Elefsina, Greece, with modern elements. It engages in a compelling dialogue between the echoes of the past and the rhythm of the present.

Lydia Delikoura

About the Artist

Lydia Delikoura (b. 1996, Athens) is a Greek mixed-media artist based in Athens, known for her unpredictable exploration of diverse mediums inspired by their natural decay and metamorphosis. Fascinated by the transformative power of colour and the interconnectedness of art, history and life cycles, Delikoura’s work is a testament to the complexity of her process, where various elements take centre stage, bridging the contemporary and the ancient, from a pink Coca-Cola can to marble sculptures from Elefsina.

Lydia Delikoura is one of the first artists taking part in ITERARTE’s variations series and showed at the Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens (2024). She is a graduate student of UAL, Camberwell College of Arts and Goldsmiths, University of London, and is currently studying Marble Sculpture at the School of Fine Arts, Panormos, Tinos.
