Ourania Adani

Faculty, Lead Teacher



Ourania Adani attended a Visual Arts program at UNAM in Mexico and continued studying at the University for the Arts in Berlin, Germany. Here she graduated with a Masters in 2005 strongly influenced by J. Beuys and inspired by an exciting historical chapter in Berlin of the 90’s, when the wall between East and West Germany collapsed. In this melting pot of polarities and with a thriving contemporary art scene she worked and lived for the first 15 years of her professional artist career. She has been interested and involved in fashion ever since. Fused with interests and passion for cultural identity, social issues, ethnology and sustainability as core topics she aims to create visual solutions in mixed media, incorporating drawing, painting, printing and sewing. She is aiming to offer aesthetic solutions for livable, wearable and usable art as statements to current events while exploring how to connect art and everyday life. In 2012 she graduated from the Anthropological Seminary for Waldorf Pedagogy as a High School Art Teacher. She has been teaching art since then. Currently she is working as a teaching artist at a public school in NYC, while she also follows her own art practice when not teaching.
