Chara Kontopoulou is a visual artist, born in 1993 in Cyprus. She received her BA of Visual and Applied Arts from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and her MA of Arts Management, Policy and Practice from the University of Manchester, UK. She currently lives and works in Athens, Greece.

Chara Kontopoulou's paintings are based on abstract art – she uses layers of resin, texture and paint, with the aim to create organic relief shapes or actual 3D painting. The outcome is a shiny and reflective surface, consisted by countless and delicate strokes. When the viewer changes his/her position, the overall image changes respectively.
