Maria Kelesidi lives and works in London as a visual artist. The human form dominates her work, exploring relationships between people and the space around them. She believes that through reminiscing and observing our past we redefine ourselves in the present.

She has co-authored and co-designed the limited edition publication ‘Lead between the Lines’ with contributors Rick Poynor, Freda Sack and John Morgan, the book was launched at the Design Museum in London April 2007. Selected painting is displayed at the Saatchi gallery since 2013 as part of the Saatchi Screen project. Video work has also been screened at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris between 2011–2015.
