Biography of Elena Ioannou
Lover of fine arts, with artistic trends from child with a pencil in one hand and a book in another... I remember myself, to paint and write, listening to music.
Realistic with my own way, if there is realism because life we now live longer moves the boundaries of surrealism.
I live my reality through music, studying at the Municipal Conservatory of Kavala, drawing and writing what my conscience dictates. I am inspired by what I see around me... a picture, a person, a cloud... the mood of the moment.

Elena Ioannou Poems
Sad Spring during the mourning and your flowers cry. The tears of sorrow
Dandelion And Daffodil
I dressed Autumn to welcome you
Σιωπηλό δωμάτιο, απορροφά τα βήματα, απορροφά τις κραυγές, τις φωνές, τις ομιλίες,
Μ ' αγγίζει η απουσία της διάφανης νιότης. Γυμνή ερωμένη ενός παλιού Δεκέμβρη, ξεδιάντροπη, σαν φάντασμα εμφανίζεται στις παγωμένες νύχτες του Χειμώνα
Γέρασε η ψυχή της Ελλάδας, γέρασε και των αρχαίων η μνήμη. Σκονισμένες οι περικεφαλαίες σπασμένα τα δόρατα των ένδοξων μαχών
I will chisel pale doves of marbles from the gold and ivory statue of Zeus in Ancient Olympia and from the Acropolis rocks.
Poets Of Eden
Kavafis, Elytis, Seferis, Sikelianos, Palamas All that you ‘re being placed and daydreaming
A Dream Within A Dream
A dream within a dream a life beside a life you are dreaming but you must beware
Dead are the words From your absence Lips are sealed Continual silence
The Dance Of Erinyes
Initiated to the rescued one
Imprisoned Thou Of Shadows
The night brought darkness Black lace embroidered at moon's face it brought the pale light that fell on the dark house.
I am revising my life. I think my right theory adopted. The blurry sea
Ebony And Ivory
I wasn't born in Africa but Africa is inside me.
North Wind Of Time
Α wind of change rages blowing furiously through the heart's leaves which hit themselves
Εσύ που εντός μου κατοικείς
υπαρκτό κι ανύπαρκτο Εγώ
σχεδόν σαν μια σκέψη
εκ των προτέρων
και εξίσου περιστασιακά
για να επανεμφανιστείς
μεταμορφωμένο σε ύλη
