Fotini Galanes

American, born 1965

Fotini Galanes is best known for her intensely intricate drawings of mesmerizing organic abstractions. Obsessive and calculated in her method and detail, every mark matters and every visual moment has assigned meaning in her work. Her compositions push and pull at viewers, establishing a dialogue at a distance that shifts upon closer inspection. While her works often exude a sense of playfulness and whimsy on the surface, her content is frequently steeped in deeply personal symbolism, metaphor, and narrative that encourages and rewards deep reflection and contemplation. Galanes is also the creator of My Mark Matters, an interactive global outreach project integrating art, storytelling, and technology to facilitate connection, inclusion, and empathy.
