Christofilogiannis Dionysis


Currently, Dionisis Christofilogiannis is a Visual Arts instructor at the American College of Greece DEREE.

Dionisis’ artistic approach deals with a dialogue between different types of art. His works dominate the architectural element and geometrical forms where simplicity, purity, and abstraction come together with beautification and lyricism. He comments on the contemporary social, economic and political disorder where the right to housing, a fundamental human right, is placed under constant questioning.

He is a founder of Daily Lazy Projects (2012-13) and artist/coordinator of the White House Biennial (2013-15). Space52 founded by the artist Dionisis Christofilogiannis in 2017 and supports Athens based artists and continuously seeks collaborations with art spaces and professionals from abroad. Our community and network grow by facilitating collaborations, exchanges, and research-based project. Space52 serves as a hub for local and international creatives, intellectuals and theoreticians.
