About Eleanna Anagnos

Eleanna Anagnos (1980) is an abstract visual artist who creates work which shapes perceptions of light & space. Her work challenges the spectator to pause, reflect and reconsider their sensory perception. She achieves this by visually manipulating negative and positive space.
