Daphne Christoforou is an illustrator from Cyprus. She has recently graduated from the Royal College of Art (London) and was lucky enough to be the Winner of the V&A student Illustrator of the Year Award (London) as well as the Winner of the Adobe Achievement Award in Illustration (Los Angeles).
She is fascinated by ancient oriental artwork such as Hindu imagery, Tibetan iconography and Indian Miniature painting. Daphne is drawn to the visual richness, naiveté and historical context of this imagery, but most importantly to its depth of meaning and link with eastern philosophy and spirituality. These are elements that she aims to incorporate in her work, with a contemporary twist.
