Christos Pantieras is from Ottawa, Ontario. He received an M.F.A. in sculpture from York University, and a B.F.A. from the University of Ottawa.
Pantieras explores themes of communication, relationships, intimacy, and identity. Sourcing online language from emails, text messages, and gay hook-up apps, he manipulates the digital word through analog processes. His work amplifies the resonance of a lost connection while blurring the boundaries between virtual space and physical space.
Select institutions where his work has been presented include: The Ottawa Art Gallery, Galerie UQO, The ArQuives, Modern Fuel ARC, AXENEO7, Circa-Art Actuel, and Artcite Inc.
