Nia Hefe Filiogianni (b. 1990 in Athens, Greece) lives between Athens (GR) and London (UK). She is a visual artist, creative director, coach and founder of Cream Athens, a non-profit agency supporting emerging artists from all over the world. Graduated with a distinction from DEREE, The American College of Greece with a BA (Hons) in Visual Arts & Art History in 2014, and from Central Saint Martins (UAL) with a Masters in Communication Design with a scholarship, Nia is a professional artist with numerous collaborations and awards. 

Nia’s practice lies between mixed media painting and collage, using primarily recycled textiles and gouache. Her pieces are heavily based on semiotics, with her themes being politics and love, inspired by Greek myths and Ancient Greek culture. 

Even though her colour palette is limited to pastels which bring a calmness to the eye, the meaning behind her work is darker and opposes the first feeling the spectator takes from the work. Her work presents the beauty and the ugliness, the certainty and the doubt; the investigation of an emotional turmoil expressed in a very symbolic language; through simple shapes, signs, colours and textures. 

Her work has been widely exhibited primarily in London (UK), Los Angeles (US) and Athens (GR) at the Lethaby Gallery, The Art Foundation, The British Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts amongst others. She has been featured in Vogue GR, Bricks Magazine, CNN GR and more.
