Melpomeni Chatzipanagiotou is a Greek professional illustrator and graphic designer specializing in detailed monochromatic art. She uses sliced logs as canvases for enchanting monochromatic illustrations drawn and painted with a combination of pen, ink, gouache, and acrylic paint.
Last year (2016) I started working on a series of Wood Cut Illustrations. It started as an experiment and to explore a different surface, an outlet from using paper on a daily basis. There is something scenic working on wood, it can transport you away and it gives additional meaning and purpose to the work. Nature has always given me great inspiration and this time I tried to capture the essence of land, long fields, high mountains and plants sometimes even exploring different themes and subjects. Nature holds harmony and purity. For those who want to listen, I believe it has many things to teach us.Melpomeni Chatzipanagiotou
