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 based in Lisbon, Portugal. With a background in design and illustration, she graduated with a Master of Art from the University of New South Wales in 2017.

In coloured pencil, watercolour and layered mixed media, Kareena works predominantly on paper to explore themes of duality and dichotomies — isolation and connection, past and future, tangible and ethereal, natural and artificial. Through her drawings she aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia and tranquility, challenging the borders of real and imagined, presence and escapism.
