Alexandros Mistriotis was born in the Canadian capital of Ottawa on 17 August 1973. Having been raised in Athens, he moved to France where he studied at ESBAM (the Higher School of Fine Arts of Marseille). His artistic profile is somewhat elusive, with his work consistently oscillating between text and image, presence and representation, rigour and abstraction. Some of his texts have been performed as part of a project for the Théâtre de la Quiétude, while others have contributed to wider research into contemporary oral expression and remain, therefore, unpublished. He is regularly invited to share his ideas on issues such as the relationship between art and society, or the influence of narratives in our shared present.
