"The king of the city of Troy"
The king of the city
It is an allegory for the son of Hector Astyanax who is about to be killed when Troy is conqured by the achaeans.The golden thread on his head is a sign of his imperial heritage and the texture of the sculpture transmits the tragic fate of the child.
The sculpture belongs to an installation with a title"the farewell" with two more figures ,Hector and Andromachi which compose a theatrical synthesis representing the farewell of a woman and a child to the warrior before the final fight.On the side of the sculpture the observer may see a wooden structure symbolizing the archetype of an "oikos"(house).The sculpture is made of plaster and burlab on a metal armature..

I was born in Cyprus and I have studied Architecture, graduating in 1995 with a thesis entitled "Myth-historical topography", a land-art project, being my first step towards a new descipline the one of Art. After working for three years in an office producing mainly stage-design projects, I was awarded with the scholarship in sculpture from the National Institute of Scholarships of Greece and continued my studies in sculpture in K.I.A.D in Canterbury, England. I received a Master's degree in Fine Art in 2000 and since then I 've been working as a sculptor. My work is dealing with matters of form and space, which means that incudes Installations, Land art projects, Design of monuments and Drawing as a tool of understanding reality, expressing emotions and ideas as well as a preliminary stage for sculpture projects I am also concerned on the human figure and how it is placed in space. My work has a morfology that reflects my relation with the history of art from the ancient to the contemporary.
