Lina Pigadioti-Tzima (b. Athens 1967) studied at Parsons School of Art & Design in Paris (BFA, 1991) and Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design in London (1990). In 2013 she completed a Contemporary Art course at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York. And in 2014 she participated in a Printmaking Master Class at Columbia University (School of Visual Arts), New York.


Having worked for 18 years in the publishing business, since 2008 she has devoted herself to art. She travels extensively for inspiration, taking pictures, writing and collecting objects and memories. She then creates a series of works of art which combine painting, etching, collages and photography in a very personal way.

Her work seeks to visualize the impact of time. It depicts images of fthora (wear and tear, decay) and, through varied ways, means and techniques, recounts the feeling of spoilage that time leaves on matter. Lettering and random incidences complete the “syllabus” of her communication bible. Lina lives and works in Athens, Greece.

Works of hers are shown in the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki, and in private collections in Greece, UK, USA, and Belgium.
