All About Stelios Lykotrafitis
I am Concept Artist, and Art Teacher,with experience in Adult Education sector, in privet workshops, as well as in public school sector.
I work as a full time Art Teacher in Public sector.
I have a bachelor degree from the ‘Athens School of Fine Arts’. Part of my BA was attended in France (2005-2006) at École supérieure des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg.
After my graduation, from the ‘Athens School of Fine Arts’ I worked as an Art Teacher in various privet and public educational sectors, teaching among others, academic design, Architectural design and history of Art. The need to extend my knowledge theoretically philosophically as well as practically led me to decide to attend an MA course in Goldsmiths University of London.
I attended an MA in ‘Aural and Visual Cultures’, in Goldsmiths University, in London, which extended my understanding for Visual Cultures. The course has sharpened my attention variously to interacted areas of culture expressions in the domains of Aural (aurality, musicality, noise, voice) and Visual communication (video, installation art, sonic art, etc). In the light of these innovative critical approaches I had the chance to implement critical theory, within the contemporary visual and aural art fields, and their intersections.
