2. EARNING ZEN COINS

  • General Members can earn zen coins on the purchase of qualifying online products at zenartsupplies.co. To receive zen coins for your Online purchases, you must be signed into your account. You may check at any time to see if you are signed in to the Site by looking in the upper right-hand corner of the site. Gift cards do not qualify for zen coins. Other products that do not qualify for zen coins are noted on the Site.
  • Earning Rate. Members earn 5 sen coins for every $1.00 spent on qualifying purchases (in other words, one (5) zen coins for every one dollar ($1) spent). Zen coins are based on your order subtotal, after any discounts, only. Zen coins are rounded down to the nearest whole number. For example, if you spend $9.99, you will receive 9 zen coins. The calculation is as follows: $9.99 x 1 zen coins per dollar = 9.99 zen coins, which is rounded down to 9 zen coins. This program started on August 17, 2020, and initial levels were set on the 2020 amount spent on ordering products. Note: Shipping and Taxes are not taken into consideration. If an item is return and/or price adjusted that will also be removed from your rewards calculations.

Theodora Augusta Lionti: Modern Renaissance and Contemporary Elements

Theodora Augusta Lionti: Modern Renaissance and Contemporary Elements

Theodora's visual style, personal and professional life. What made her choose Fine Arts over Fashion?

We've all seen her charming videos on the ZenART YouTube channel, sharing color mixing step-by-step guides, and valuable art techniques from basic watercolor to the more challenging oil paintings. In this article, we shine the spotlight on our ZenARTist of April 2021. Let's take a look at the modern Renaissance visual style, personal and professional life of Greek contemporary artist, Theodora Augusta Lionti.

Selected Pieces from Theodora's Body of Work


Theodora Augusta Lionti is a young artist whose body of work comprises striking modern Renaissance aesthetics-inspired nude portraits with idealized and beautifully proportioned bodies. Born and raised in Athens, Greece, her work often depicts charming bejeweled and modernized Greek mythological characters rendered on big canvases. 

Her background in design also enables her to create bespoke art for luxury brands. Theodora completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Leeds Arts University and holds a Masters of Arts in Design from AKTO+Middlesex University in London. She is currently ZenART's resident artist and Dynamic Social Integrator.

Life in Athens

Theodora Augusta Lionti was born on the 17th of August 1995 in Athens Greece, to parents Anastasios Liontis and Kyriaki Alexiou. Her father Anastasios is a well-read businessman who inspired Theodora's visual style through his fascination with history and mythology. He also inspired Theodora's upcoming series of portraits of the gods of Olympus. When she was a child, her father would often quiz her about the Gods of Olympus, Seven Wonders of the World, and the Seven Wise Men or the Seven Sages of Greece.

Kyriaki Alexiou, Theodora's mother, is a dynamic businesswoman who has a lively magnetic personality that draws people into her. She is Theodora's cheerleader, her number one fan who has always believed in her artistic talents and kept most of her drawings through the years. When she was just beginning with her art practice, Theodora would sometimes paint with her mother in their living room.

As a child, she started making art as early as she can remember. Armed with colorful felt tip markers, watercolors, and gouache, she would attempt to draw or paint the people around her, the subject she mostly favored. 

Like all other talented children, she believed that her proficiency was at the same level as other kids. Eventually, Theodora discovers that she has a natural gift for rendering people and their clothing.

Left: Theodora's portrait of her mother, Kyriaki Alexiou when she was 6 years old. Right: Theodora at 6.

At a really young age, Theodora already knew that her future career will be something related to art. You see, her grandmother is a seamstress. Theodora remembers fond memories of the sound of sewing machines, the feel of the textures of different fabrics, the beauty of the intricate details on the embellishments, the wonder of seeing a new dress fresh out of the studio. Because of all this, she believed she will likely be a fashion designer. 

Her earliest drawings reflect this belief, from princesses in beautiful ball gowns to portraits of people around her in beautiful clothing, she drew inspiration from her grandmother's craft.

Theodora acquired her first formal education in visual arts through Costeas-Geitonas School, a private educational institution based in Athens, Greece. This is where she learned to paint different subjects, using different mediums and basic painting techniques. It is also in this school that she received her International Baccalaureate diploma. 

 

Fine Arts vs. Fashion Design

As part of the multifaceted program at Costeas-Geitonas School in Greece, Theodora took on two big creative projects that brought about a big dilemma. Remember that earlier in her life, she believed that her future lies in fashion? When she was sixteen, Theodora designed a whole collection of ethical clothing that she presented through a fashion show. It made her so happy she felt like she can do fashion shows for the rest of her life.

In her final year, she was required in her Visual Arts class to put together an exhibition. She planned an 18-piece collection. She locked herself up in her room for a month and furiously painted and crafted her pieces with the help of her grandmother. Theodora filled this exhibit with her acrylic and watercolor paintings as well as art objects, fashion items - a collection of hand-embellished bags and clothing.

Wondering why she included some fashion pieces in her art exhibition? Well, at this point she was uncertain whether she'll pursue fine arts or fashion design. So she thought, why not merge the two? The game-changer however is when all her art surrounded her during the exhibition opening. She observed the guests sipping wine while looking at her pieces, listened to random conversations, and sneaked behind unassuming friends who are talking about her art. At that moment, she knew.

Art Life in Leeds

Leeds loves red. The lovely scarlet city became home for Theodora for some years. It was an "eye-opening" experience for her to be exposed to contemporary and sometimes more conceptual art. Since she's been used to all the graceful mythology and history-inspired classical art in Greece, this was a new side of the art world for her.

Prior to attending Leeds, Theodora completed her foundations in visual art at the Plakas Arts Centre in Athens. There she found a great mentor who believed in her. This mentor instructed her on an in-depth practice of different techniques using a whole range of mediums. Plakas Arts Centre prepared her for what's to come. And these two experiences shaped her current visual style.

Theodora completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the Leeds Arts University. Leeds Arts University had great teachers and an amazing facility. The university aided her in developing what she received from Plakas Arts Centre. It is in Leeds that she learned the ins and outs of the art world, how to conceptualize and pick subjects as well as how to develop her unique visual style.

Theodora mostly preferred watercolor earlier in her career as it's the medium she feels more comfortable using.  Watercolor also made her work stand out in a sea of acrylic and oil paintings. When she  mastered her unique portraiture style, she started using more oil and instantly fell in love with the medium. 

Art for Brands

In mid-2020, Theodora completed her Masters of Arts in Design at the AKTO+Middlesex University. Since then, she added creating bespoke art for brands to her repertoire. She created painterly advertisements to promote Tony Moly - a Korean beauty brand that caters to both men and women. The designs and the execution were well received for being out of the ordinary and for being inspired by vintage 1950's painterly ad complete with EL wire lighting.

ZenART Social Integrator

Modern Renaissance Visual Style and Influences

Let's look closely at Theodora's visual style. She paints her nude often mythological subjects in the style of the modern Renaissance yet renders them outside their usual contexts. What she does is a bold and rebellious attempt to marry modern Renaissance aesthetics with contemporary elements like tattoos, twenty-first-century technology, jewelry, and setting.

When interviewed about how she would want people to perceive her art, she said "People think my art is erotic because I paint mostly nudes and men with jewelry but that is not the case. My pieces are not meant to be erotic, they are however inspired by Renaissance nude paintings that mean to show the beauty and the proportions of the human body."

-Theodora Augusta Lionti


Despite choosing to study Fine Arts instead of Fashion Design, her love for fashion will always have an influence on the aesthetics of her pieces by making her subjects wear the statement jewelry or embellishments she designs.

In Gamer Boy (2020) piece, Theodora added contemporary elements - modern socks and a gaming console - to her otherwise classical nude painting in a damask wallpapered room. Her body of work also often exhibits men who are not afraid to show their feminine, vulnerable side that goes against the macho man cliche of the older generations.

Selected Pieces from Theodora's Body of Work

We've selected a few of Theodora's pieces that exhibit her visual style as well as her development through time. Proud to mention that she's created some of her beautiful pieces using ZenART Renoir Collection and Artist's Choice Collection brushes for oil and acrylic.

Quite similar to what she is doing for the ZenART community, Theodora aims to become an art teacher in the future and inspire more people, especially children to create art. Say hello to our ZenARTist for April 2021, our very own Theodora Augusta Lionti! 

Join her in Painting Inspiration Daily | Ideas, Tutorials, and Guidance to Motivate YouFacebook Group where Theodora moderates a weekly fun art challenge that everyone can participate in.

Theodora is currently painting a portrait series of the Olympus gods for her upcoming solo exhibition in Athens so stay tuned for that. Meanwhile, what are you currently painting? Share them below! Let's start a conversation.
