Marianna Gioka

Marianna Gioka’s works have, from very early days, been distinguished by an extraordinary sensitivity to her materials. Her wide variety of mark making has a balance and harmony whichever gesture she calls upon. Initially, her interest in landscape used an idea of architecture to provide the structure –an earlier series was inspired by Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’ while other pictures include tiny landscapes, which call to mind Vermeer’s ‘View of Delft’.


Marianna Gioka (b. 1980, Greece) attended the Pratt Institute, NYC (2006), the School of Fine Arts at Madrid (2002-2003) and the School of Fine Arts at Athens (2000-2005). The artist currently lives and works in Athens. Gioka had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Greece and her works have been shown at international art fairs. Her paintings are regularly acquired for private and public collections including: Eurobank; Marfin Bank, Benaki Museum, Vore Museum, the National Theatre of Greece and private collections in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, USA, France, Italy and Greece.
