 OPY ZOUNI (SARPAKI) (1941-2008)

Born in Cairo (Egypt), Opy Zouni (Sarpaki) studied there painting at the Zorian Workshop (1959-1962), ceramics at the American College (1960-1962) and photography (1959-1960).  In 1963 she settled permanently in Athens, where she continued her studies at the School of Fine Arts, initially in painting with Yannis Moralis (1963-1968), then in ceramics (1963-1965) and later in stage scenery and decoration (1967-1969).  She had her first solo exhibition in Cairo (1962).  Other one-woman and group shows followed in Greece and abroad, including the Biennales of Sao Paolo, Alexandria a.o.  She has given a distinct personal style to her painting, a characteristic abstract geometry work.  Opy Zouni (Sarpaki) passed away in Athens (2008).
