Daphne Christoforou is an Illustrator fascinated by ancient oriental artwork such as Hindu imagery, Tibetan iconography and Indian Miniature painting. She is drawn to the visual richness, naiveté and historical context of this imagery, but most importantly to its depth of meaning and link with eastern philosophy and spirituality. These are elements that she aims to incorporate in her personal work, with a contemporary twist. Daphne works with a variety of mediums and surfaces such as ceramics and textiles.
Alongside this she works as a freelance Illustrator and has produced editorial work for publications such as The Telegraph, Focus Spezial and Human Resource magazines, as well as patterns and prints for various companies around the world.
Daphne graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2015 and was lucky enough to be awarded the V&A Student Illustrator of the Year Award (London) and the Adobe Grand Prize in Traditional Media (Los Angeles).
