KALLI KASTORI

Painting

Kalli Kastori was born in Volos. Having pursued her studies in music and guitar,
she very soon became highly successful. She did recordings for radio stations in Cairo,
Romania and Sofia, and for the Greek state broadcaster, ERT. She taught for many
years and gave concerts at international festivals, such as the Apollonia Festival of
Art in Bulgaria, and in Aalborg in Denmark. In March 1988, one of the best known
magazines in the field of music, Classical Guitar, published an article entitled “Greek
Notebook – Colin Cooper visits Volos”, in which the writer described her music as
follows:
“I am impressed by Kalli Kastori… She plays so sensitively and with such a lovely tone”.
From 2000 onwards, Kalli Kastori devoted herself entirely to the Fine Arts. In 2003
she became the top entrant to the School of Fine Arts in the Aristotle University
of Thessaloniki, and graduated top of the master class of Giorgos Golfinos. During
her studies, she was honoured with four scholarships from IKY
(State Scholarship Foundation), and received the highest mark. Having graduated
from the Aristotle School of Fine Arts in June 2008, she was awarded a scholarship
from the Michelis Foundation for postgraduate studies abroad. She studied at
the University of the Arts (Wimbledon College of Art), in London, and was taught
by the internationally well-known artist, Geraint Evans. In 2011, she graduated with
a Master ofArts.  Her work has been exhibited in well-known art galleries in Greece and
abroad.
In 2013, at the Hellenic Cultural Centre in London she had a solo exhibition, entitled
“Freeze”, which led to an article being published in the Wall Street International
Magazine entitled “Kalli Kastori: Freeze”. Works by Kalli Kastori can be found in the
Frissiras Museum collection in Athens, Vogiatzoglou collection and in many private
collections in Greece and abroad. Some of her works are exhibited in public
institutions and art galleries.
