Maria Nymfiadi is a visual artist born in Athens, Greece. She has studied sculpture in Athens School of Fine Arts, photography in Hogeschool voor de Künsten in Utrecht, Holland and received a master’s in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martins, University of London.
She is the co-founder of the MouSou project that aims to create participatory art projects often related to the educational process. She has participated in many group exhibitions and art projects.
Her work includes site-specific installations, collaborative and participatory projects, photography, video and performances. She is interested in experimenting with various procedures when creating an artwork.
She has worked in different areas such as graphic design, furniture design and education. She believes everyone can learn how to be creative and that the best way to appreciate art is through experience when you participate in an art project.
At the moment she lives in London with her family, she is running a drawing course for adults (details in the news page) and also developing ideas for transgenerational educational projects.
