Andreas Voussouras was born in Athens in 1957. From 1979 to 1982 he lived in Paris, where he studied sociology. His artistic interests apart from visual arts, include radio shows and set design.
Since 1990 he has collaborated with various dance and theatre companies as set designer and musical supervisor. He has exhibited in Greece, Austria, Germany, Portugal and Turkey and works of his can be found in the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki, and private collections in Greece and Europe.

Voussouras's work usually consists of environments and constructions. Among his favorite themes are the relationships between time and matter and individual and collective memory. In subsequent works, the installation is the shell within which material and spirit co-exist with the memory of human action. Objects are transformed into signs and symbols as a variety of materials such as tar, wax, cotton, glass, cloth, wood, metal, rope, iron and photographs are frequently marked by the ravages of time and human intervention.
