Sculpture - 117x88x55cm

The piece is made of painted steel. At the time that I made it, I was impressed by the colors of the deserted diesel engines in the scrapyards of Perama, Greece. Also, I have been influenced by global mass and pop culture, such as Flash Gordon comics. As a consumer, I love objects. I also like aeroplanes. The process that I followed as I created it consists of less or more chaotic moments and also of the structural idea of the "spare part".

Archaic / antiCyclops


Sculpture - 32x22x45cm

The piece is made of marble. It is inspired by the hair of Kouros and also by massage tools and sex toys. I like owls and when I made a model that preceded the marble version of it, I was also thinking of alpenhorns and of the muscular stratification of flesh.
