Christos Mavrodis (b.1995) is an audio-visual artist born in Greece, currently based in the Netherlands.

To create an image, to interweave strands of life with colours and lines is the question circling Christos Mavrodis’ search. Working becomes the only viable way of expelling something troubling from his own system; of untangling the yarn of existence. Amorphous beings and unpleasant daydreams emerge from a thick consistency.
A delicate intimacy is exposed, quiet and expansive at the same time, rendered less subtle by the titles which hold matter together. Looking at his work, both a feeling of reward and melancholy crawl up one’s eyes. The thoughtfulness of his enterprise nudges our attention; we participate in this uncompromising display of vulnerabilities, resembling a muffled conversation around a crackling fire. Existential questions and notes are taking form as stories and are expressed through drawings, paintings, text, objects and audio-visual media. He is particularly interested in a fragmented way of telling these stories. He blurs and twists them in a way that it’s not clear who and what they were about in the first place. Not even to him. What matters is to follow the emotional thread they leave behind.
