About Giannis Dendrinos

Giannis Dendrinos was born in 1978 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and lived there until the age of 12. He studied in Athens to be an automation technician (2003), and then art restoration (2006). Self-taught in metal sculpture, he lives and works in Athens -where he has his workshop since 2000- both as an artist and an automation technician.

The raw material he uses for his artworks is industrial metallic spare parts. The subjects that inspire him are either human-centered, such as motherhood, or connected to the nature of the material he uses, originating from the contemporary industrial society. His work focuses on the position and relation of Man with the modern society he lives in, as well as the contradiction between human nature and the automated society.

In 2015, he founded everythinginart.com, an on-line art gallery aiming to promote arts and craft by Greek artist. He lives in Athens, Greece and is a father of two girls who are often for him an inspiration about life.​
