Christos Anagnostopoulos, born in Athens in 1955, studied sculpture and specialized in primitive casting techniques and artistic metal processing. For the last 20 years, he has been living and working in Tripoli, a city in the centre of the Peloponnese, surrounded by mountains and carrying important history and culture.
His artwork is marked by the traditional technique in bronze, often incorporating details in glass, iron and aluminium. Thanks to the lost wax technique, the details add realism and emotion to his pieces. His work is distinguished by the harmony of the shapes, the finishing details and the wonderful patina.
One of Christos' favorite subjects is the perennial "Olive Tree". The aged body of the tree, the engraved trunk, cracked and often broken but still alive, is an imprint of time itself. The majestic old body stands in harmonious contrast to the small young leaves that represent youth.
The same harmony is shown in his remarkable work "Eagles". The unexpectedly friendly look of the bird is combined with its fierce predatory character. Its movement is captivating. The wings, made of heavy bronze metal, are nevertheless light in our eyes. The bare tree trunk serves not only as a simple base. It perfectly completes the dramatic effect of the artwork, depicting the feeling of loneliness.See all works
