Natalia Manta is a visual artist living and working in Athens. She studied sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Arts (2011 – 2017), where she also completed her Master’s in Fine Arts. Memory, time and myth are the three most predominant notions at the epicentre of her visual artistry. Her main intent lies with the creation of a symbolic body, where matter replaces speech creating its own narrative. Manta employs different materials such as metal, clay, light-sensitive chemicals and video projections. She co-operates and interacts with artists spanning the width of the disciplinary spectrum – visual, music, theatre or performance artists. Her work has been internationally exhibited in various solo and group exhibitions. In the period 2017- 2020 she taught sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Arts in Athens. Her works can be found in private collections. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2022).
