Sculptor Stathis Alexopoulos was born in Athens where he currently lives and works. He studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts of Tinos and then at the Fine Art School of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where he graduated with distinction. He has participated in many group exhibitions and won numerous awards in Greek and international sculpture symposiums.

According to an announcement, Alexopoulos uses Ancient Egypt’s  mummification techniques to redefine the form. His works connect the past with the present, aiming to bring the essences of time and art closer. His sculptures feature hubs formed by belts and stripes.

The exhibition is open to Makedonia Palace’s visitors and the residents of Thessaloniki in the main lobby, until September 2019. All sculptures are available for sale.
