ATHENS, Greece - Hilton Athens is proud to host an exciting exhibition of impressive artworks by Zoe Keramea, the renowned artist, inviting guests into Keramea's creative world of sculpture, printmaking, drawing and ceramic art.

The exhibition, running in the lobby and Aethrion Lounge at Hilton Athens until 25th March, will include artworks and structures made of paper adapted to the space of the hotel, as well as nine intricate patterns on the walls that the artist used in Mandala Memory HD, a digital game created for iPad.

Zoe Keramea was born in Athens, Greece in 1955 and graduated from the Universität der Künste in Berlin with a Meisterschülerin Degree. In 1989 she was awarded a Fulbright Grant for independent research in printmaking to work on her new intaglio printing technique, "zoetype", in New York. She has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and museums around the world, taught various workshops in universities and museums and published a number of artists' books. Her Mandala Memory game, including 54 paper cut-out images, presented by The Dukode Studio NY, is available as an App from iTunes. It was awarded 3rd place in the Best App Ever Awards 2010. She lives and works in Athens and New York.
