Urania Gazelli, was born in Athens, Greece, pursued her passion for art and design by studying at AKTO and earning a BA Degree in Industrial Design from Middlesex University between 2004 and 2009. Now residing and working in Athens, Urania draws upon her upbringing in a family immersed in the art of acrylic and brass sculpting. Under the guidance of her father, Pavlos, she developed a profound appreciation for plexiglass and its creative potential, inheriting his expertise and love for the craft. Urania’s artistic creations embody a harmonious fusion of classical elegance and contemporary innovation, crafted with the finest acrylic materials sourced from Italy and Germany.
Among her notable projects is a hand-sculpted art piece created for the Cycladic Museum in 2016, showcasing her mastery to the fullest. In response to the global pandemic, Urania contributed her artistic skills to the COV-ART project in 2021, crafting a unique acrylic mask for the Copelouzos Family Art Museum, uniting with 459 artists worldwide to create a symbol of resilience and solidarity.
Continuing her artistic exploration, Urania recently unveiled her latest creation, the “Share the Love” red acrylic heart, inspired by the societal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This symbolic piece, crafted exclusively from acrylic, reflects on the collective experience of isolation and withdrawal, serving as a beacon of hope and compassion. Embraced by corporate partners for charitable endeavors, Urania’s heart exemplifies the transformative power of art to inspire and unite communities in times of adversity.
