Stathis Alexopoulos (1976) was born in Athens where he currently lives and works. He studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts of Tinos and then at the Fine Art School of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where he graduated with distinction. He has participated in many group exhibitions and he won numerous awards in Greek and international sculpture symposiums.
Alexopoulos contemplates that contemporary sculpture must keep its foundations in the persistent values of classical sculpture since the form has the power to define the artwork's meaning and mission. He therefore positions the art of sculpture within the rules of contemporary design. Being intrigued by the design and manufacture of utility objects, he considers them as works of art.
His creations are hosted in private collections and can be found in major museums art shops in Greece and abroad. These include the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Benaki Museum, Theocharakis Foundation, Ianos shop and N Design & ART in Cyprus. His pubic work creations decorate many big Municipalities of Greece and he has co-operated creatively with big companies in their advertising campaigns.
