Anthoula Lelekidis is a Greek-American lens-based artist who utilizes photography, printmaking, and mixed media in her practice. Her work navigates themes of personal memory, loss, and migration. With a deep interest in the archive, she alters found family photos to interpret a deeper tie to her heritage and uncover ancestral roots within blank spaces of her recollection.

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Parsons School of Design and received the Community Fellowship from the International Center of Photography from 2018 to 2020. She was a resident at the Skopelos Foundation of the Arts and earned a scholarship from the Students On Ice Organization to travel to photograph Antarctica. Most recently, Lelekidis was the recipient of Manhattan Graphics Center's printmaking scholarship and is currently a faculty member at the International Center of Photography. She is based in Queens, NY.
