Born in the 1960s in Athens and educated in Paris, Greek artist Christiana Soulou will soon be presenting a selection of new works under the title Les Enfants Terribles - inspired by the 1929 novel of the same name by Jean Cocteau, I presume; no press release has surfaced yet - at London's Sadie Coles gallery.

There's a rather obvious seductive Hans Bellmer and playful Pierre Klossowski influence to what she does and every once in a while, some Rachel Goodyear poses come to mind.

It's obviously rather heartbreaking to view her work over the interwebs as her drawings are way too fragile and intricate - so if you're in London, do go check out Les Enfants Terribles at Sadie Coles where you can also pick up reasonably priced books about her work - one even written by the great Hans Ulrich Obrist. Gosh.

The show runs until December 21 . All details below.
