Get to know Anastasios

Anastasios Nyfadopoulos

Anastasios Nyfadopoulos is the recipient of the 2018 global arts Award from Red Line Artworks and a member of the Chamber of Fine Arts of Greece. In 2015, at the age of 22, he creates “Crisis”, the first public sculpture addressing the consequences of the socio-economic crisis on humanity. Leading national and international media, including the Associated Press and Xinhua News Agency, report on the artwork. He participates in exhibitions and art fairs in Greece, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Anastasios focuses on humanity, how it is shaped, how it may change and evolve. He embodies in his art the principles of interconnectivity and perpetual change, through the theme, the physical appearance, the materials of choice, and the fabrication process.

Part of his process involves the stretching and loosening of thousands of carbon fibers by hand, creating a dynamic motif that emerges somewhere in its original state while elsewhere transforms into parallel black and white lines. This affects the artwork’s physical appearance, resulting in a continuous motion of the fibers in the perception of the observer, embedding perpetual change. Both carbon, being a common element all living organisms on Earth share, and the way the carbon fibers intertwine in his sculptures to produce synergy, embody interconnectivity. 

By reflecting on perpetual change, Anastasios believes that people may realize that no matter the phenomenological permanence of a situation, our attitude towards it is up for change. Through the embodiment of interconnectivity, he hopes to motivate people to think inclusively, to feel part of a superorganism that evolves when we interact and collaborate.

“Love drives me to create the new right now”

“To create big changes we must gamble. The question is how much?”
