Fotini Chamalidou was awarded the Certificate of Excellence in the UK’s Orthodox Art Festival

The Honorary Distinction was awarded to Fotini Chamalidou, in the Category of Fine Art, through the process of public voting.  

The Certificates of Excellence, of the Orthodox Arts Festival — an online event dedicated to Orthodox Artists around the world — are awarded to artists who, according to public votes, have demonstrated exceptional skill and piety.

As the artist herself points out, her artworks consist of natural and organic Food Waste materials. The idea began to emerge in 2016, when, following a short career break, during which she studied Gastronomy, she began to notice the vast amount of food waste in professional kitchens. On a quest for ways of achieving personal change and adopting a more sustainable lifestyle, alongside her deep concern regarding the effect of climate change and modern lifestyle on ecosystems and human beings themselves, she developed the idea, within the framework of an innovative art form , of the “Sustainable Food Waste Artwork”.

As a Sustainable Visual Artist, Fotini Chamalidou, brings forth a unique artistic vision that is aimed at raising awareness regarding issues of sustainability and respecting the biodiversity of ecosystems.

Award of Excellence in the category of Fine Art:
