  • Biography
    With a background in engineering, I love combining geometry with engineering craftsmanship to create art that explores the way we coexist and attempts to address important social issues in a ‘playful’ way. The coexistence of randomness, chaos, and order is something that fascinates me and dominates my works. Therefore, I often incorporate symbols of gaming and unpredictability - such as dice - to refer to the complexity of everyday life in the modern world. I enjoy making ‘joyful’ works that are aimed at the broad audience, with simple and pure language, outside institutions and age limits, remaining as innocent and unpretentious as possible. I constantly collect elements from artists that dominated movements like Pop art, Op art, Surrealism, Formalism, and Minimalism and I'm trying to transform them in works of the present.

    Event: Alex in Wonderland II

    Dates: Nov. 20, 2020 - March 31, 2021

    Venue: The Project Gallery, 3 Normanou Str., Monastiraki, 10555 Athens

    Unpredictable events have drastically altered our circumstances and the world, as we know it, is no longer there. The new normal is well outside everyone’s comfort zone, appearing almost surreal. It feels as if we are part of a bizarre fairy tale, anxiously bargaining for a happy end.
    In the face of chaos, artistic activity has not ceased. Artists continue doing what they know best: capturing emotions and creating dreams without employing words, using their images to give us all the kiss of life.

    Event: Kunstnernes Efterårsudstilling (The Artists’ Autumn Exhibition)

    Dates: Nov. 3, 2018 - Nov. 18, 2018

    Venue: Den Frie Udstilling, Copenhagen, Denmark

    The Artists' Autumn Exhibition (KE) is a censored exhibition for contemporary art.

    The Artists Autumn Exhibition was formed in 1900 as an alternative to Charlottenborg's Spring Exhibition, which at that time only accepted works by academy students. Since 1900, the Autumn Exhibition has lived as a democratic measure and a door opener to the professional art world, since everyone can have their works professionally art-professionally judged regardless of network and background.

    Event: MFA graduation show - The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts

    Dates: April 12, 2018 - May 25, 2018

    Venue: Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark

    I participated in this prestigious graduation show with my large interactive sculpture-installation 'A strangers attractor'.
    The work consists of an oval-shaped, dome-like chamber, with a multiple sound-echo system built-in, and long pipes that spread out of it and occupy different spaces at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

    Event: The Spring Exhibition

    Dates: Feb. 3, 2017 - March 11, 2017

    Venue: Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark

    The Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition is one of the most important open submission exhibitions in Northern Europe, and has been held annually at Charlottenborg in Copenhagen since 1857. The Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition originated as an exhibition showing new works by Danish artists but now features participants from many countries. The exhibition is organised by the Charlottenborg Foundation and its board, consisting of Thomas Lindvig (visual artist), Peter Møller Rasmussen (architect), Cathrine Raben Davidsen (visual artist), Søren Rønholt (photographer), Annette Dam (jewelry artist) and Christina Augustesen (visual artist).
