About

Work

Stavros Chatziioannidis is a contemporary sculptor based in Greece, his field of interest lies in humane and natural forms. Graduated with MA in sculpture at 2017 from Fine Arts department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki under professor Tsaras George and is active domestically and internationally.

His Work is about the self perception , of Purpose, of Time, of Decay & of the notion of the Utopic.
A modern persons place inside a rapidly evolving world , and the violent change an individual is undergoing presented via an expressionistic manner.

Statement

Little is in our day-to-day lives that changes truly, thus we tend to take a more linear approach to things. The sun rises, the sun sets. Twenty-four hours. Week after week, everything is but a line of parameters with a start and an end and with just a few standpoints in between. Meanwhile, the world shifts at an fathomable rate and we are unable to do anything but observe the tide that passes over us.
With the effects of technological advancement being stronger than ever we tend to become more passive, homogeneous. All while society demands of us to be successful in multiple levels, and, social media, simultaneously, allows us to shape how our identity appears at a whim.

We often tend to loose our sense of purpose and become more and more self destructive, slowly depression takes its toll over us. Our wars have become Spiritual while the enemy lies within.
How is our uniqueness affected? Where is our true self in all this? What is left of our inner child? Inner divinity against inner demons ? The extremes now always seem to meet, while we look for the one we often stumble upon the other. My prime purpose as an artist is to raise questions like the above.  Through a distortion of form my aim is to create a visual juxtaposition between the image and the soul,  materialise the underlying extremes, the reason, the urge , the desire, the oppression, and bind them to a deformity through a peculiar rhythm.
