Constantinos Alpha is a Greek-Cypriot contemporary artist. He was born in 1979 in Limassol where he lives and works as an artist and art teacher. H.R Giger, Ron Mueck, Patricia Piccinini, John Isaac and many others hyper- realistic artists are among his influences.
He mostly focuses on sculptures, constructions and installations, however he has also created a series of art paintings. Constantinos Alpha is greatly inspired by religion and mythology. His sculptures, constructions and installations combine elements from human beings and animals in a hybrid way.
Constantinos Alpha works with a variety of materials such as clay, polymer clay, fibre glass, latex, human and synthetic hair, wood and paper. He also likes to recycle and give new form to found objects.
His first complete project concerned animal abuse, a series of detailed and imposing sculptures that depict animal cruelty. In order to be fully devoted to his project, he became a vegan throughout the three-year creation process. He has also created Madonna series, a project regarding the love of the mother towards her child. For this project he used mix media.
He has curated a number of exhibitions. He has collaborated with several artists and curators from all over the world. His work was featured in several newspapers and magazines as well as on TV.
