Born in Athens (GR), lives in New York (US).
In 1966, after studying in Geneva, Eleni Mylonas moved to New York, having obtained a Fullbright scholarship for postgraduate studies in journalism at Columbia University (1967-72). Later she studied photography at the Central London Polytechnic, London (1972-74), painting and sculpture at the Brenda Goodman Studio (1984-1986) and at the New York Studio School of Painting, Drawing & Sculpture (1995), plus electronic imaging at the New School Computer Center (NY, 1993-1999).
Her main medium of expression is photography, but she also uses painting, sculpture, objects of everyday use, video, while also borrowing elements from performance. She often develops her work into large thematic units while also being inspired by social reality, history and memory.
She has taught at New York’s New School University (Parsons School for Design, 1994). She has presented her work internationally in both solo and group exhibitions (Athens Biennale, 2007, Thessaloniki Biennale, 2011).
