    CARLOS NAVARRETE, (2013) "It is because a great part of the strength of the colour that inhabits her work comes from her inner self, thus, her work as a visual artist is the reflex of that light that she has inside." Carlos Navarrete The Power of Color in the Paintings of Daphne Anastassiou "In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is - as it physically is. This fact makes of the colour the most relative means in art." Josef Albers

    CONCEPCIÓN BALMES, (2009) "Through a sensitive and musical colouring her work come to us like a breath of fresh and spring-like air.

    MARIO FONSECA, Independent Curator (2009) "The density that we observe in Daphne Anastassiou's works constitutes the succession of incursions that have passed through the format, coating it with memories and promises over which the artist will trace later the profile of her protagonists.""

    NATALIA ARCOS, (2010) "The betrayal to the realistic representation of the visible world is in Daphne Anastassiou the explorer engine of subconscious, what makes her explode also the surface of the work." Natalia Arcos Painting in continuous trance. As soon as I met her for the first time, I knew that Daphne Anastassiou was an explorer. She belongs to that category of human beings who prefer to venture into the unknown rather than be builders, intermediaries or investigato
