Antonios Koutouzis

Antonis Koutouzis is a conceptual glass artist, currently living and working in UK. He primarily uses cast and hot glass techniques to create sculptural work, as a way of effectively communicating the topics he explores.

His work expresses an attempt to research and expose certain aspects of philosophical and socio-political issues. He draws inspiration from current and past events that trigger his need to express his views or raise questions that may lead to creative conversations. He views his work as a celebration of life; finding beauty in the world by revealing its inadequacies.

Hence, he chooses to use glass as a protagonist within large; often mixed media installations, that create an emotional experience which aims to stimulate critical thinking.
