Aindreas Scholz

Born to an Anglo-Irish mother and a Sudeten-German father in Wiesbaden, Germany,
Scholz experienced a culturally rich upbringing, dividing his time between Ireland
and Germany in a bilingual family setting. His artistic journey unfolded as he studied
photography at the Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) under the mentorship
of Dr. Anthony Haughey, igniting a profound interest in visual narratives.

Relocating to London, United Kingdom, Scholz pursued postgraduate studies at
Goldsmiths College, University of London. Under the mentorship of Turner Prize-winning
luminaries such as Dr. Elizabeth Price, Grayson Perry, Mark Leckey, and Laure Prouvost,
he delved into critical and contemporary art-making theories and practices.

Equipped with this broad knowledge, Scholz further honed his skills as a teacher
at the Institute of Education, University College London, specializing in imparting
art and photography education to young people.

His works have been exhibited across European events, including Rotterdam Photo Festival
2022 XL in the Netherlands, and Rotlicht Festival for Analog Photography 2022 in Vienna,
Austria, where he was a joint-winner.

Scholz's works have been recognized at important environmental exhibitions like Climanosco
in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and Extraction: Loss and Restoration in King’s Lynn, United Kingdom.

Most recent events include FUTURES Photography 2023, based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands,
nominated by PhotoIreland. Scholz's artistic contributions have been acquired by the Office
of Public Works in Ireland, the NHS Foundation Trust in England, Goldsmiths College in the
United Kingdom, and the collections of IBASHO Gallery and Frédéric de Goldschmidt both in Belgium.

Scholz currently resides and works in London, United Kingdom.
