Peny Manavi

Born in: 1968


Peny Manavi was born in 1968. She lives and works in Athens.

In 1992 she completed a degree in Physics at the University of Athens and in 1994 an MSc degree in Radiation Physics at University College of London. Between 1996 and 2000 she worked as a Medical Physicist in KAT Hospital and the Onasseion Cardiosurgery Center. In 1999 she started her studies at the Athens School of Fine Arts with professor Y. Psychopaidis, from where she graduated with distinction in 2004. In 2013 she participated in the exhibition “Art en Capital”, Grand Palais Paris and was nominated with the distinction “Toile d’Or de l’Année 2013” by the “Federation Nationale de la Culture Française”.

The artist has always been fascinated by the odd and intense color combinations one can find while studying the biodiversity and abundance of colors and shapes in nature. The artist has been inspired by the microcosmos of insects and plants in focusing on the detail of plants and animals or the mysterious world of sea depths. While studying the detail and focusing on her subjects, Peny discover a whole new imaginary world.

Through painting Peny Manavi expresses her admiration to the mystery of life as well as her belief that people should consider nature as a source of joy and optimism. At the same time art is a triggering event for introspection a means of liberation of feelings that come out through the intensity of color and gesture which enables her to express rhythm and movement.

In her art one can find a balance between realism and abstraction. The motives and themes are recognizable but not always obvious and are viewed from a different prism through focusing. Her artworks is characterized by expressionism and a series of successive registrations on the surface of her canvases where one level of ‘script’ penetrates and is internally linked with the next.

She uses oil paint and printing ink alternating them and forming color spots and lines which transform to a gesture, attributing movement and rhythm in her artworks as well as texture and a variety of densities. The intensity, brightness and transparency of the colors Peny uses reflect a Fauvist approach that combines with a dynamic gesture and abstraction. The vivid colors and movement that create an energy flow which penetrates my artworks, are finally balanced in a composition of dynamic equilibrium where the aesthetic outcome reflects an optimistic and dynamic view.
