Artist Leto Lama - Garden of Midas

Leto Lama is a third-generation Greek artist & designer based in London that focuses on simplified and abstract art influenced by both historical and modern art.

 

Leto comes from a family with deep artistic history; both mother and grandmother (respectively Eva Persaki and Gianna Persaki) are well-known Greek painters and Fine art teachers while her grandfather was the renowned Greek poet Miltos Sachtouris. Her grandmother was one of the first abstract women artists in Europe as well as a student of the French painters Fernand Leger and Andre Lhote.

 

Leto initiated her drawing and painting education at the age of 5, under the academic instruction of her direct family. Inspired by daily thoughts, travelling and real-life situations she minimises the details of her objects to create simplified and expressive art.

A strong artistic family, coupled with her Greek and Asian origins as her father is from Tibet has provided her with a unique style inspired by the West and the East.

Her works can be found in private collections  London, USA, Greece, Hong Kong, France, Belgium, China, Switzerland.

Leto's artistry continues beyond the canvas as she is also the designer and maker of the jewellery and accessories brand Cyclades. The collection is currently comprised of multi-colourful accessories, as well as fine jewellery that use Greek Mythology as a source of inspiration.

 

Her creations can be found at www.cyclades.shop
