About Twofourtwo Art Group

The TWO|FOUR|TWO art group was formed on 21 August 1996 in Nicosia, Cyprus by Constantinos Kounnis and Costas Mantzalos; a two-person group working as an entity. Over the period of the 20th century the boundaries of artistic genres were fluid and constantly changing. It is not rare in the contemporary art scene to find works that require a whole new platform to be placed upon. A platform which can accommodate a hybrid of disciplines such as design, architecture, fashion or even literature. The TWO|FOUR|TWO art group embarked on a voyage of collaboration under the umbrella of the group. Deriving from different backgrounds; a visual artist and an architect - both parts explore their common experience to produce a visual base on which they can communicate, between themselves and with the viewer. The work itself does not pretend to be a traditionally accepted artform but it rather seeks a place in its own right. It was the creative displacement of both parts which has lead them to work as a group.
