Collage artist Demos Tsormpatzoglou
Born in Thessaloniki (North Greece) he now lives and works in Athens as an art conservator specifically on paper, parchment and old manuscripts. He tents to recycle and transform everything in art. Old furniture, clothes and other objects can all be useful and with the appropriate treatment give birth to a piece of art. Because of his work he "knows" how paper behaves as a material and it has become his ascendant material on his collage works. “Self-taught”, started creating hand cut collages for himself in 2007 until his first solo exhibition in 2010 in Thessaloniki with the title “Torn Edges”. Since then he has participated in group exhibitions and had other solo ones in Athens, Thessaloniki, Myconos-GREECE, Eindhoven-HOLLAND, Milano-ITALY, Dublin-IRELAND and Brussels-BELGIUM.
