About the artist: Aglaia Perraki
Aglaia Perraki - Xenaki was born in Chania, Crete in 1966. From the time she was a child, in search for ways to express herself, she became interested in painting, jewellery making and dance. For many years she studied Byzantine Art and the “ Fayum “ Portraits, which became a point of reference for her artistic creations. In 1988 she studied at the Fine Arts School of the Polytechnic University of Crete. In 2011 she started to write her first stories, which were the inspiration of her series of paintings “ intuitive attachments “. In 2015 she illustrated the fairytale, “ How I learned to smile “ by Aristides Tsaldaris. Art is an indispensable part of her life. She lives in Chania, where she works as a painter, while teaching Byzantine Art and drawing. Her works can be found in Museums, private collections and in churches in Greece and abroad.
