Paraskevi Balafa was born in Thessaloniki and is currently living and working in Grevena. She is a graduate of the history department of the Ionian University. From an early age, her love for art pushed her to find a way of expression. At university she always participated in projects that gave her the opportunity to highlight her inclination towards painting. She has sketched catalog covers, sketches for electronic games etc. She has now settled on the creation of three-dimensional canvases with gypsum as their main material. The inspiration behind her works is the chaos, the euphoria and the complexity of the soul.
