Chrysa Koukoura

Artist - Melbourne

"I tend to go on drawing binges, not drawing for a while then drawing non-stop. All or nothing."

Chrysa was born and raised as a child on the island of Rhodes, Greece; her mother English, her father Greek.

At the age of eight she moved to the UK, where the concept of rain, ice-creams and HappyMeals all year round was a pretty exciting prospect.
At eighteen she moved to London to study for a degree in Graphic design; she graduated from the University of the Arts in 2009, where detailed illustrations had played a prominent role in her work and something she would later look back on and develop into her distinctive style today. The next couple of years were spent discovering, and today Chrysa has switched up London for Melbourne and has worked on numerous projects with clients such as Diesel, Icebreaker, Wholefoods and Fat Cat Records, contributed to several books and publications and is now drawing, screen-printing in Melbourne.

"I like to draw in solitude if I’m honest. Headphones in. I treat my drawings like reading a really good book. Lots of breaks, but any spare moment I have I will get back to it. They take a long time so I don’t finish them in one siting. After 7 hours or so my fingers begin to cramp from being clawed round my pen for so long, so on my drawings breaks I plan the following drawing."
