Stathis Alexopoulos was born in Athens in 1976 where he lives and works. He studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts Panormos Tinos and the School of Fine Arts of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Department of Fine and Applied Arts, where he graduated with distinction.
One of his great interests is Sculpture in Public Places.His creations adorn many big Municipalities of Greece, as well as the Hellenic Air Force Academy.
He has co-operated with big companies and has participated with his creations in their advertising campaigns (Red-Bull Hellas, Vivartia, Militos publications,Forever, Olimpiakos BC). Moreover he has created works of contemporary aesthetics for big night clubs in Athens (Plus X, Motel).
He believes that contemporary sculpture should be based on the concrete values of classic sculpture, and that the shape and its dynamic are those which define a work of art and its meaning. He integrates the art of sculpture with the trends of contemporary design. He is interested in designing and creating useful objects, which still however remain works of art.
His creations are hοsted in private collections and at selected shops in Greece and abroad, in the art-shops of museums such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki, the Benaki Museum, the Fine Arts Foundation “ B & M Theocharakis”, in “Ianos” shop and “N design and art” in Cyprus.
He has participated in many collective exhibitions and has won awards both in Pan-Hellenic Art Competitions and in International sculpture symposiums.
