Iro Tsavala

Iro Tsavala is an author-illustrator working in London since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2008. Iro works with books and self-initiated projects as well as Illustration commissions. Iro's books contain short, surreal narratives, often inspired by everyday events that evolve into dreamlike and sometimes outrageous storylines. Iro uses collage, printmaking and drawing but also found objects - particularly things that are washed ashore.
Alongside image-based narrative books, Iro writes and illustrates books for children that include slightly absurd situations, combining fun and poetic elements.
