Eleni (Lena) Christakis is a New York City based visual artist who grew up in Massachusetts. She graduated from Yale University in 2020 with a BA in Art, concentrating in Painting. Pulling from the tradition of still-life, her paintings often deal with consumption, waste, excess, and deterioration through the lens of contemporary culture. For three years at Yale, she was a member of The Control Group, an experimental theater ensemble that makes collaborative multi-media performances. She also loves working with young children.
