Leandros Ntolas

Leandros Ntolas is an interdisciplinary artist from Greece, currently based in The Hague. Holding a BA (Hons) in sculpture, his work spans many different mediums, with a specific interest in the use of light as an artistic medium. Ntolas has been researching light through the study of optics, atmospheric optics, vision and perception. Recently –being interested in the fields of philosophy of science and astronomical instrumentation– his work has been evolving around the discussion of science taking up the role of religion in our contemporary societies; where one can view the scientific instruments as the sacred objects of our time. Ntolas is as well involved with art in the public domain –with several works permanently installed in public spaces in Greece–, and is currently developing a series of architectural spaces that deal with one’s perception of light in the natural environment.
