Biography


DENNY THEOCHARAKIS loves traveling around the world and using her camera to capture moments of everyday life at her destinations. Even though each country has its own culture and way of living, she never ceases to be amazed by how similar at their core these seemingly foreign and distant cultures are.

Her travel experiences form the basis of her artwork. Using the memories and feelings from her observations of the different aspects of daily life in the world she creates in her artwork a new, seemingly complicated, reality. A reality, that like in real life, is full of different distinct paths leading to different destinations.

Her art creations are constantly changing, evolving, as she refuses to be associated with a particular school of thought or style. Her style is uncompromising, adventurous. She is in constant search for new ways to express herself using different materials, textures, techniques.

Denny Theocharakis has presented her work in solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad. One of her paintings belongs to the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Greece.

She holds an MBA from NYU Stern Business School, a BA in Economics from National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and she is a graduate of Athens School of Fine Arts.
