Antrea Tzourovits has completed his undergraduate studies in sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Arts and holds a postgraduate degree from the Slade School of Fine Art (UCL, University of London). In his practice, he uses a wide range of expressive media and materials, including sculpture, painting, installation, video, and music. He adopts familiar materials and popular symbols in order to create imagery that resonates with the viewer, focusing particularly on the poetic-philosophical of objects and situations. The poetic narrative style he has developed allows him to explore the ambiguities of life with the aim of generating metaphorical content from his own, personal experiences. From an early age, he has held various jobs, including as a playground manufacturer and luthier. In 2020, he presented his first solo exhibition entitled APORIA at Kalfayan Galleries in Athens. He has received a postgraduate studies scholarship from the NEON Organization for Culture and Development. In 2022, he received The Kenneth Armitage Young Sculptor Prize and the UCL East Provost Art Prize. He has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS in 2022.
