I invite the observer to feel part of a superorganism that evolves when we interact and collaborate

Anastasios Nyfadopoulos

     In 2015, at the age of 22, Anastasios created “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, reported on the artwork. In 2018, the artist received the global arts Award from Red Line Artworks. Ηe is a member of the Chamber of Fine Arts of Greece and an ambassador of contemporary Greek art. 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. With the healing process of collective trauma being the overarching theme in his work, he interconnects performance, poems and sculpture. His material research explores basalt fibre, mycelium, plant-based resin, brass and copper. Levi-Strauss’ analysis of how healing can be experienced through myth alongside Aristotle’s concept of catharsis inform his thinking on how visual arts can assist in alleviating societal pain.

     Furthermore, he observes the war, environmental, and pandemic crisis we are simultaneously going through and express this liminality we experience, interfering with notions about the “decline of violence” by Stephen Pinker. Instead of disrupting the social fabric and obstructing our shared connections, Anastasios aims to support them with his work and weave them stronger.
