About the artist…
Giannis Dendrinos was born in 1978 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and lived there until the age of 12. He studied in Athens to be an automation technician (2003), and then art restoration (2006). Self-taught in metal sculpture, he lives and works in Athens -where he has his workshop since 2000- both as an artist and an automation technician.
The raw material he uses for his artworks is industrial metallic spare parts. The subjects that inspire him are either human-centered, such as motherhood, or connected to the nature of the material he uses, originating from the contemporary industrial society. His work focuses on the position and relation of Man with the modern society he lives in, as well as the contradiction between human nature and the automated society. He lives in Athens, Greece. He is the father of 2 daughters.

Where I find my inspiration?
My inspiration have been the natural environment of African landscape and the primitive way of life. My father’s metal workshop where I used to spend many hours playing are the basic reasons that led me to metal sculpture. I mostly use engine’s spare parts. They provide me with shapes and forms which I weld, grind, polish and finally varnish. I feel that I always have something new to discover. Every new invention leads to new ideas and creations. Using parts is about constructing, assembling, disassembling. Try the infinite possibilities of combining various objects to form abstract art. This spire sculpture is a combination of abstract and industrial art.
My current themes are mostly humanoid. As am attempt to show the fragile nature of mankind through the birth cycle, the creation process, motherhood, love. On the other side, I experience metal sculpture as a game and revive my need to play by creating vehicles such as motorbikes, cars and trains.
The strong needs of an individual to explain his existence. To seek his origins and the power of the mind are themes that fascinate me. A challenge for me would be in creating huge metal sculptures involving movement in order to create kinetic sculptures (kinetic art). I admire kinetic artists such as Jean Tinguely, Alexander Calder and classic sculptors such as Henry Moore, David Smith. My goal through my artwork is to convey the way I experience life and my exploration of art by using an industrial material which is being transformed to an unusual medium in Art.
