Following the success of his recent solo exhibition Distorting the Inherent Artereal Gallery is thrilled to announce that we are now representing Yioryios.
Yioryios creates organic architectural forms which are grounded in the framework and mentality of painting but realised in the form of sculpture. Working with aluminium and acrylic paints, the artist bends, folds, contorts and manipulates his materials – an almost choreographic and dancerly process which culminates in the creation of works defined by a sense of energy and movement.
Yioryios is a Sydney based emerging artist whose work explores the boundaries between painting, sculpture and architecture.
Graduating from the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Visual Arts with Honours in 2014, Yioryios has since held numerous solo exhibitions and been invited to participate in numerous group exhibitions at spaces such as Artereal Gallery, M16 Artspace and Belconnen Arts Centre. In 2015 he was a finalist in the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. His work was recently featured in Artist Profile magazine and Habitus Living. His work is held in significant private collections both in Australia and internationally, and is also included in the collection of the Australian Embassy in Paris.
Yioryios is a current finalist in the 2016 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize.
