Wooster: Who and/or what are some of your influences?
Alexandros: Talking with people and listening to bizarre personal stories. My work is first of all human-based and I am interested in realizing deeper how weird creatures we are.
Wooster: What other artists do you most admire?
Alexandros: Theo Jansen is by far my favourite one. I think that the great art has to include numerous approaches to the main aspects of life. Jansen does it perfectly!
Wooster: How would you describe your art to someone who could not see it?
Alexandros: That’s a bit awkward! I would say that through my work I try to investigate our troubling nature. And even if this investigation can never conclude it is interesting to see how far it can go.
Wooster: What other talent would most like to have?
Alexandros: Music composition! What I like is that music touches and moves deeply a really wider audience than visual art does. Of course that’s the point!
Wooster: What do you fear the most?
Alexandros: Losing the ability to do what I want. Secondly to lose my passion for that.
Wooster: What is your greatest ambition?
Alexandros: Still searching..
