Myria Christophini. 2018
​I am a Scottish and Cypriot experimental animator, visual artist and researcher. As a researcher, my work is a practice-led investigation into creative communication avenues among people in conflicting communities, via animation ​. My animation practice forms part of my research but I also maintain an independent of my research art and illustration practice. I was educated in Fine Art at the Bauhaus University in Germany, where I specialized in drawing. I then went on to study at the University of the Creative Arts, where incorporated the animated element into my artistic practice. From there on, I traveled to Glasgow, where I was trained as an animator at the Glasgow School of Art. At the GSA I also completed a practice-led PhD in Art, Animation and Peace-building. I am living in Glasgow and despite repeated effort I cannot speak with a Scottish accent. Glasgow
