Theodoros Zafeiropoulos (b. 1978) lives and works in Athens and NYC. Each of his projects is the result of modifying a material from its prior use, with refined intentions and specific handling. Through continuous transformation, the primary material becomes a tool and carrier of diverse human and natural characteristics. The importance of constant transfiguration in his projects is based on hi interest in ephemeral environments and un-monumental constructions that are made not to remain, but to exist.
Theodoros studied painting in the School of Fine Arts, Aristoteleian University of Thessaloniki, and participated in the Erasmus program at the University of Barcelona. He graduated from the MFA program of the School of Fine Arts in Athens in 2006. Theodoros graduated from the MFA program at the School of Visual Arts in New York as the recipient of the Paula Rhodes Memorial Award, Fulbright Scholarship, Gerondelis Foundation Scholarship, and the and Al.Onassis Foundation Scholarship. He is currently a PHD candidate in the School of Architecture, University of Thessalia, Volos, Greece.
