Angelika was born in Athens, Greece 1980. She was brought up in Corfu where she spent all her youth years. After she finished high school she moved to Athens where she studied at Vakalo School of Art. Having graduated with a BA in interior design she worked at the specific field for a few years realizing that she was more fascinated and attracted by everyday objects that surround us.
As a result she started ceramic lessons where she immediately connected with the material of clay. She studied at UWIC (University of Wales Institute,Cardiff) and graduated in 2006 with an MA in Ceramics. Her thesis was on “mind entrapment as a human condition”. Her MA art work was exhibited in various places and galleries in Britain. She returned to Greece and set up her own studio in 2007. Amongst other collaborations her work has been included in private collections, Benaki Museum, Piraeus and other shops and galleries that fulfill her aesthetics.
Her work can also be seen at Chris Boicos Fine Arts, Paxos ,Greece and dterra gallery, Barcelona, Spain.
About my work
All the pieces that i create are one of a kind by hands only. I am fascinated by the impact that an everyday object can create to the viewer and mostly attracted by natural colors and techniques, that embody the imperfection and the uniqueness of something being created without any machine being involved.Expanding the limits of the material and the impression of fragility has always been in my interests.
