    May 2019: Deborah Argyropoulos

    Deborah Argyropoulos

    Deborah Argyropoulos is a contemporary American fine artist who is nationally known and collected for her combination of raw talent, emotional energy, unique use of materials, and cultivated techniques.

    In her artist statement, she writes: "One of the most common questions I am asked is 'how long does it take to paint that.' It is a near impossible question to answer as some pieces span over years and others months and some weeks. That is just the physical act of painting, not including the lifetime of learning, perfecting and experimenting my own techniques, and always trying to keep the work fresh and current. There is no formula, no outline to follow- no schooling that we get a certificate at the end that will make someone see us worthy to hire. It is a daily effort of love and dedication that is like no other career out there (arts excluded). I may not be fixing broken bones, performing lifesaving surgeries, or straightening teeth but I promise you that I work just as hard, if not harder, for a longer period of time, with less accolades to create something from the soul."

    With a national following of loyal art collectors, Deborah is always growing and expanding in her field. She collaborates with interior designers and the luxury design community. As an artist she has developed relationships with curators, art consultants, architects and builders/developers of residential and commercial buildings.

    In 2016 Deborah Argyropoulos’ original artwork was commissioned for large-scale installments in Houston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Boca Raton, Austin, and San Antonio. She continues to place her art in commercial and private collections and curates exhibitions for art galleries and special events. Deborah has a BFA from the University of Maryland. In parallel to her commercial success, she works closely with various charities to help raise money by donating her art and time to causes she believes in. She has worked with Make a Wish Foundation, Breast Cancer Resource Center, MS foundations, animal rights and rescue organizations and many others.
