Maria Siorba (b. 1986) is a Greek visual artist based in Athens, with an educational background in Communication, Graphic Design and Fine Arts. Taking a subtle approach to subjects of intimacy and human emotion, the notion of empathy is a cornerstone of Siorba’s artistic exploration. She examines the role that personality, mental state, emotional intelligence and cultural context play in the context of ever-evolving modes of technology and communication. Communicating and miscommunicating, her images reflect the difficulties that humans encounter in expressing themselves.
