Nia Hefe Filiogianni was born in 1990 in Athens, Greece and currently lives in London. She is a visual artist and founder of Cream Athens, a platform that celebrates and supports emerging art from all over the world. Graduated with a distinction from DEREE, The American College of Greece with a BA (Hons) in Visual Arts (Minor Art History) in 2014, she later completed her MA studies at Central Saint Martins (UAL) in Communication Design with a scholarship. Nia's work lies between painting, illustration and sculpture. Her body of work is heavily based in semiotics, organic forms, and text, inspired by ancient Greek culture and myths as well as classical and religious art. Her primary materials are wax, concrete and textiles and her colour palette is exclusively limited to pastels.
Nia's work has been widely exhibited primarily in Los Angeles (US), Athens (GR) and London (UK) at the Lethaby Gallery, M-Art Gallery, Bios Romantso, The British museum and The Crypt, Bloomsbury. She has been featured in Vogue GR, Bricks Magazine, CNN GR and more.
