Kareena Zerefos

Drawing narratives of life's dualities,
from enduring myths to the here and now.
My approach is anchored in the belief that creativity serves as a conduit for authentic connection, a notion that feeds my exploratory journey.

Born in Sydney, Kareena Zerefos is a Greek Australian artist residing in Lisbon, Portugal. Her artistic journey began in childhood, and continued with an undergraduate degree in design, after which she developed a distinct illustrative style and multidisciplinary practice that has evolved over the years. She returned to the University of New South Wales, and graduated with a Master of Art in 2017. 

In coloured pencils, watercolour and layered mixed media, Kareena weaves intricate narratives of life in her works on paper, delicately intertwining themes of isolation, connection, duality and dichotomies — past and future, tangible and ethereal, natural and artificial. Through her art, she evokes a sense of nostalgia and tranquillity, challenging the borders of real and imagined. 

Her work has been recognised and celebrated in numerous exhibitions and publications, setting a profound foundation for her continuing endeavours. Kareena Zerefos offers viewers an immersive and thought-provoking experience, inviting them to join her as she continues to explore the boundaries of her own personal journey.
