About Lila Koufopoulou

I always knew that my bliss is in the arts.

Following my early studies in painting, I focused in becoming Art Director working with Fortune 500 companies and global brands in the Advertising industry for more than a decade, winning important European distinctions.

Working with different communication techniques to diverse audiences and reflecting on my restless and creative nature, led myself to further, postgraduate education in Boston-USA and later in establishing myself as a credible presence in the world of fine arts.

My paintings show a unique synthesis of colorful imagery drawn from the world of feelings, passion and the unconscious, all converging to deeply touch the senses and enhance the environment they are displayed in.

My three art series in different media (abstract video art, painting and poetry) under the title “Trilogy ABOUT SOUL” with a special emphasis on the 3rd part DREAMS, are creatively vibrant, flowing and distinctive.

My unique, full of motion artworks are included in many collections of Greek shipping companies and, in corporations and organizations in Europe and USA - as PIRAEUS BANK, UNI-PHARMA PHARMACEUTICAL LABORATORIES, the «VIP Suite» OF THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN GREECE, the GRAND RESORT HOTEL and Spas LAGONISSI - one of the Leading Hotels of the World.

A number of my print artworks are also donated in a few special events - as is the auction for the construction of the FRANCISCAN CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL & REHABILITATION CENTER in Boston, the silent auction for the Celiac Department at the Columbia University in 2015 and the farewell gift to the former Ambassador of Canada in Athens-GR in July 2015..

I am a member of the Tufts University Alumni Club, the Greek Alumni of American Universities and a former member at the International Association for the Study of Dreams, CA, USA.
