The World's Women On-Line!

Polichronatou was born in Athens, Greece. She studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts. She graduated in 1985. She was awarded two scholarships from the State Institution of Scholarships. The need to investigate volume, mass, and three-dimension led her once more to the School of Art to study sculpture, graduating again in 1993. Polichronatou went on to obtain a PhD in Art History. She has published texts on the relation of art with the ecology, environment, public space, and technology. She is a member of the Greek Chamber of Art, Greek Sculptors' Association, and School of Art Graduates' Association. She now teaches at the Athens School of Fine Arts.

In her painting and sculpture, Polichronatou uses distinct forms taken from the world: man, trees, mountains, stars, birds, and moon along with other more abstract forms, such as cross and infinity signs. By attributing symbols to letters she creates an alphabet from our world. Polichronatou's solo exhibitions include: Mind's Landscape, E.P.A.S.K.T, Athens, Greece, 2006; The Words Through the P. C., DIAVASIS, Athens,1999; The Words That Move, E.P.A.S.K.T, Athens, 1998; The Words in Three Dimensions, Greek Sculptors' Association, Athens, 1997; and Painting the Words, National Gallery of Athens School of Art, Athens, 1996.
