Antonakis / Too Cool For School

Eleftheria Tseliou gallery is proud to start the new exhibition season with Antonakis Christodoulou’s solo show ‘Too Cool For School’. The show opens on the 26th of September and is to be on display until the 2nd of November 2013.
Christodoulou’s new body of work consists of oil pastel drawings – studies of American tv sets-, handwritten vampire prayers on ceramic plates, visualizations of instances drawn from internet related pornographic material, as well as photographs of movie set exteriors in L.A. Antonakis Christodoulou’s work is characterized by a distinctive, versatile artistic approach – pop, fauve ect- as well as the combination and the exploration of various visual media. In his new work, the artist once again insists on his ongoing interest for the popular culture, in his attempt to prove the theory that television and internet are the mythology of our times.
Antonakis Christodoulou was born in Athens in 1978. He studied painting and photography at the Athens School of Fine Art and Fine Art Media at the Slade School of Fine Art at UCL. He works in a large variety of media including photography, ceramics, painting, collage and video. He has presented his work in solo and group exhibitions worldwide. He lives and works in Athens.
