Chronis Spanos is passionately seeking to explore surrounding living space using his camera to pave the way to fantasy and re-generation.
Urban constructions and monumental architecture are first on his list to be hacked and restructured in a way that he can elusively fantasize 2D spaces -in times dystopian- which challenge the impossible.
Influenced by Visual Arts, Cinematography and Architecture, Spanos studies form, light, and geometry, seeking to seize the moment and capture the emotion. He is inspired by the human dynamics of the spaces and he integrates it to the final outcome which, although seemingly de-humanized, incorporates the “anima” of the photographed place.
Spanos is affiliated with International Hellenic University of Thessaloniki, Greece, running the photography club since 2012, whereas he has taught other photography workshops in Greece, such as at City College, and at the Institute of Cultural Vocational Education in Thessaloniki, Greece.
He has been collaborating as a fashion photographer with many international and local magazines.
His work has been shown in solo shows and group exhibitions (Municipality of Kalamaria / Greece, Urban Rhythm-Art & Dance Festival, Thessaloniki / Greece, Art Gallery of Architectural Department of Municipality of Thessaloniki / Greece). His solo show Re-GENESIS (photo-hacking the 5 Museums of Thessaloniki, Greece) has been exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki from July 2014 to April 2015. His solo exhibition XY@T is currently showing at Teloglion Foundation of Arts, A.U.Th.
His new show “Maraya” runs at the Art Festival “Abu Dhabi Art 2015” and his project “The Missing: Rebuilding the Past” travels to New York, at the Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery in December.
