About Milly Flamburiari
Milly Flamburiari was born and brought up in London. She started drawing at a very early age. After boarding school she attended Saint Martin’s College of Art, studying general art and later, at the Chelsea College of Art, dress design. She went on to practise photography for one year at a private American studio in London.
Her first personal exhibition ‘Greek Themes’ at Zygos Gallery in Athens, showed works in tempera paper, mostly of modern landscapes with figures. The critics praised her striking variety of colour, the expression of humour, her imagination and her great detail.
Milly Flamburiari is married to Count Spiro Flamburiari and travels extensively. Apart from painting, Milly has decorated the Corfu Country Club, the Cavalieri Hotel in Corfu town and her Villa ‘La Serenissima’.
Over the years she has been painting a variety of subjects, mainly in oils, and exhibited ‘Flowers’ at Arndean Galley, London in 2003. Recently she created a series of paintings under the title ‘Come to the Circus’ exhibited in 2009 at Partridge Fine Art, in Bond Street, London.
Milly’s works at her present exhibition cover a great variety of subjects, such as garden and country scenes, cats in different moods, seaside vistas, Jazz-age parties, tea gatherings, exotic encounters, majestic elephants, snow activities, Art Nouveau and Art Deco scenes, dream sequences, still life and geometric designs. All her pictures are approached with her familiar fine technique, chromatic exuberance, subtle humour and playful imagination.
Many of these paintings, especially the ART DECO, ART NOUVEAU works could be used to great advantage by Interior Decorators/Designers in search of something a little bit different.
