"Ms Papapostolou’s large canvases, which are as striking as the brilliant light of the Greek mainland and islands while avoiding any shadow of pictorial cliché, enthral her viewers.

"Her use of abstraction serves her need for freedom of expression, and in this way her works acquire their own autonomy."
"I love color and I need it in my life," Ms Papapostolou declares.
And its obvious that this particular artist lives and breathes through the special gift of nature, color.
