Eleni

An architect that loves design, adores art and has an inherent admiration of the pen and paper culture. She has been passionate about expressing her ideas, criticism and emotions through sketches from a very early age and since then her drawings have gradually developed a distinct character.

Her illustrations are graphic and minimalist. They often perceived as innocent and playful at first sight, trying to get the viewer engaged, to then reveal a more political, sarcastic and even dark side to them. The characters are telling a story, which is usually autobiographical. This particular collection was developed while her father was gravely ill so all artwork is lovingly dedicated to him.

Eleni is co-founder and director at Yellow Cloud Studio, an architecture and design practice based in Clapton, London. All illustrations are available through thestore and are part of the studio’s effort to diversify and conceive products that represent its philosophy.
