NOULA DIAMANTOPOULOS ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Lives and works in Sydney, Australia.
Noula Diamantopoulos is a Sydney-based multidisciplinary artist working across a variety of mediums including performance, sculpture, mosaics, printmaking, painting and encaustics.
Much of Noula’s work explores new ways of making, seeing and understanding both art and the world. As an artist, practicing psychotherapist, and holistic coach, she constantly strives to create work that captures and expresses those universal feelings and emotions which cannot be named or described, but are an essential part of the human condition. Her practice explores the life force and the whole ‘idea of us’ through her art.
Noula has embraced the medium of performance art as a conceptual and enigmatic vehicle for her continuing search for meaning, understanding and interpretation of the human psyche and the inner-self. Her performance work QUEST, is an interactive and collaborative social project focused on community involvement and engagement which draws on relational aesthetics and the artist’s background as a practicing psychotherapist. Participants are invited to engage in a silent conversation of questions only, in which the dialogue is handwritten and no talking is allowed. This unique process of Q&Q calls participants to be curious, to think outside of the box, and consider if the answers we seek can actually be revealed in the questions we ask.
Noula was invited to perform QUEST as part of the Director’s Choice program at the inaugural Sydney Contemporary Art Fair (2013), and at the Melbourne Art Fair (2014). Noula has held numerous solo exhibitions in both Sydney and Melbourne. Her work can be found in collections both within Australia and internationally.
