Permalink Diana is a recent graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design University where she obtained her BFA while majoring in Drawing and Painting. During her university studies, Diana’s work was shown in several group exhibitions organized by Touched by Fire, a collaboration of artists with mood disorders. Diana’s work was seen at two shows at the Royal Ontario Museum, with several of her pieces receiving the honourable distinction of being displayed at the Ingram Gallery as well as at the Atlantis pavilion in Ontario Place. A story regarding Touched by Fire, which quotes Diana, was published in the Toronto Star in November 2009: “Survivors’ talents ablaze on Touched by Fire.”
Giving back to the community is important to Diana. She has been involved with Centennial College’s Creative Fusion Series which allowed her the opportunity to speak to students about her art. Additionally, Diana currently volunteers as an art assistant for the York Centre for Children, Youth and Families, where she is one of the facilitators of the program’s art class in addition to acting as a youth mentor by spending one on one time with youth while doing various art activities. Diana has also volunteered as a face painter at Toronto’s Sick Kids
Hospital.
Currently Diana resides in Toronto Ontario, where she practices her art.

Artist Bio



Diana Portokalidis is an artist who is inspired by experiences from those around her, as well as from her own life. She is interested in how personal stories can express hidden traumas. In her art Diana explores what is often left unspoken. She primarily works with dreamlike images, set in a delicate veil of blue, subtly tipping the scale from beautiful to slightly unsettling.
