Phyllis Fiotakis is a Greek-Australian artist born in Hobart, Tasmania. The daughter of immigrants, she explores stories of place, culture, belonging and memory. Her works seek to create personal narratives around these concepts using a variety of printmaking techniques, while also incorporating drawing, painting and mixed-media collage into her practice.
She has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Tasmania and has exhibited in Australia and the Middle-East.
Her early works were largely based on her experiences of growing up as a First Generation Australian in Hobart. Her practice has since continued to reflect upon experiences of her own emigration and sense of displacement, observations on the way culture shapes the everyday, and the feeling of being 'in between' cultures.
