Androulla Michael is a British Greek Cypriot award winning and internationally exhibited visual artist, who currently lives and works in London, UK.

Androulla has exhibited in Athens, Brussels, Italy, London, New York, and Qatar. She is the winner of the Brussels Airlines Arts Award and her work is housed in the Luciano Benetton collection. 

Alongside pursuing her artistic practice, between 2006 and 2019, Androulla taught Art and Photography at KS3, GCSE and Post-16 Level.

In September 2022, Androulla and Minnie Weisz co-curated HoME, a multimedia exhibition that brought together nine international artists working under the creative and social-cultural theme of displacement to compliment the tenth year anniversary of the Athens Democracy Forum, in association with The New York Times, held at the Zappeion, Athens, Greece.

Quoting a review of Androulla's work #Selfie of a Nobody (365 Days) by Helen Trompeteler:

Androulla Michael’s intriguing images challenge historical notions of portraiture by removing any literal likeness of the individual. While Michael’s images are autobiographical in origin, she uses these diaristic images as a means of asking much wider questions concerning societal pressure for perfection or conformism. Where self-portraiture in popular culture often involves a form of social performance, these images are appealing in their abstract and subversive nature.”
