I was born (b.1984) in Thessaloniki, Greece, I currently live and work in London, UK.

A big part of my practice explores the palpable language of materials; the objects that I am using are selected, cast or manufactured for that reason. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project, my methodology is consistent.

Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects, they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the overall subject matter. My choice of materials is based on their special characteristics and the effect they have on the spectator.

Humour and the visual joke are used as a tool to create a tragic moment where the viewer experiences an inexpressible moment. I take advantage of the “one liner” aspect in order to talk directly to the viewer; this allows a profound and humorous interaction that does not require further reflection.

My processes in the studio include some of the tools that are used to change the objects’ norms. Through this disruption, my work aims to focus on the relationships between people and things, figures and experience.
