Vaggelis Choursoglou

Vaggelis Choursoglou was born in 1979 in Athens, Greece. He has studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts and at the Lisbon School of Fine Art, Portugal.
His work brings together practices of the art history and the primitive culture in order to contemplate on the urban environment and the rise of a new tribal. Developed through the production of painting, sculptures and sculptural installations works, writing poems and the authoring of artist books, his work concerns a ritualistic performance of synthesis that speaks about the construct of a contemporary primitive language.
He has presented his work in solo shows at Outsider’s gallery, London (2011), at 31 Aischilou, Athens (2015). He has participated in group shows at ReMap, Heidelberger Kunstverein and the Scheublein + Bak in Switzerland. As a member of the collective of Carpe Diem, he has realized projects at the central bus terminus in Athens and at the Goethe Institute. He has curated events and exhibitions at the French Institute of Athens, Goethe Institute and the 11th Biennale of Young European and Mediterranean Artists. He lives and works between Athens and London.
