Augustus Veinoglou is a Greek born artist based in Edinburgh. He is the founding Director of Snehta artist residency; a project devoted on expanding artistic activity and research in the city, fostering new relationships and collaborations internally but also beyond the borders of Athens and Greece. In 2014 he became a board member at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
Veinoglou’s work is concerned with ideas of entrapment, sanctity and melancholy as the means of instigating desire, imagination and sensuality within poetically designed space. Veinoglou’s immersive installation work stems from the re-appropriation of energy, material and architectural elements that describe the transitory state of situations and spaces. Veinoglou explores how these elements can be re-arranged or re-enacted to newly impact our experience and perception in space.
