Anastasia Papaleonida- Pountza was born in 1989 in Patras Greece

She studied visual communication in Athens. As an artist she uses different kinds of media like painting, sculpture and installations. Her work rotates the last few years around repetition and dynamic, monochrome abstract forms. She uses different materials and media like plaster, clay, ink, paper, fabric and much more. Lately she creates larger size artworks like murals, choosing as surfaces of artistic expression streets and also abandoned industrial spaces in Greece, trying to interact with the place, the space and the building itself, often deriving influences from the elements that surround it.
