About Kornelios Grammenos

One of the reasons for making art nowadays is, I believe,  nothing else, than  helping to expand our consciousness. Thus, one could comprehend ideas, situations and certainly the physical and poetic boundaries of material / res in a perceptive and broad way.

Cornelius Grammenos was born in Patras, Greece in 1959.  He later moved to Athens in 1977- 1980 to study Graphic Art and Photography at The Fine Arts School of Athens.  Grammenos continued his studies at the Kölner Werkkunstschule,(Cologne School of Fine Arts), Meisterklasse where he studied both sculpture and painting with Stefan Wewerka from 1981-1988 and was declared a Meisterschüler. Grammenos then moved to Rome, Italy where he worked from 1988-1991.  In 1991, he went and spent a year in New York, N.Y. In 1993, Grammenos moved back to Athens, where he currently resides, except for the years of 1999-2000, when he was artist in residence at HIA in San Fransico, California.  Besides several group exhibitions, he has had 29 solo projects in Greece, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, The United States, and Turkey.  Grammenos has also completed 12 sculpture projects in public and semi-public locations in Greece, Italy, Germany and Turkey.
