Despina Stokou

Das 2 Minuten Interview

Despina Stokou ist Künstlerin und Chefredakteurin von Bpigs, dem Berlin Independent Guide. Die gebürtige Athenerin ging auf einen englischsprachigen Kindergarten in Saudi Arabien, besuchte eine deutschsprachige High School in Athen und ihr erstes Wort war Giraffe. Sie ist fasziniert von Zitaten und geflügelten Worten, hat aber kein gutes Gedächtnis und muss alles was sie sich merken muss aufschreiben. Womit sie gar keine Probleme hat sind Farben. Ihren Abschluss machte sie an der UdK Berlin, was sie nicht davor zurückhält ihre Kunst in London, Berlin, Athen, Wien und New York auszustellen. Sie verschenkt gerne Astronautenanzüge und wird im nächsten Leben wahrscheinlich als Kaktus wiedergeboren – aber lest selbst.
