Athena Rebecca Axiomakaros is a photographer, professor of art history at the State University of New York (SUNY), and Ph.D. student in the field of Philosophy, Art Theory and Aesthetics at the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts (IDSVA). While studying art history at The City University of New York (CUNY), she focused on domestic painting during the Italian Renaissance and the artist Pesellino, and as a philosophy student her interest has turned to a study of the tattooed body and its relationship to the world. Currently based out of New York City, Professor Axiomakaros has lectured extensively on the Italian Renaissance, as well as art theory and pedagogy over the last seven years, both for SUNY and at conferences, as well as lead tours through The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum. At Art Shape Mammoth, she has written reviews of exhibitions and will shortly help coordinate the creative retreat to Spannocchia as well as guide its guests through the art and architecture of Italy.
