Konstantin Dimopoulos

Konstantin Dimopoulos is a conceptual and social artist whose art practice is grounded in his sociological and humanist philosophies. His powerful and thought provoking art-making practices investigate globally relevant questions related to ecology and the human condition.

Dimopoulos's multidisciplinary art practice incorporates sculpture, installation, performance, painting, printing and drawing in the creation of monumental imagery, social and environmental interventions and conceptual proposals that argue the potential of 'art' as a means of social engagement and change.

Konstantin Dimopoulos was born in Port Said, Egypt to Greek parents and grew up at the mouth of the Suez Canal until the age of eight, when the family moved to New Zealand.

Drawing from his diverse personal cultural and political history, Dimopoulos fashions a visual language based on thematic and contextual constructions. These evolving pictorial narratives are descriptive of such varied issues as domestic violence, environmental ecocide, homelessness and cultural appropriation. The visual and conceptual vocabulary that emerges is focused on the points of intersection between the concept and its spatial analysis. This intersection is often the inspiration and target of his projects and installations.

His early paintings and prints explored the human condition 'with a start bravura'. In the 1990s, flexible shafts of carbon fibre became his new material of choice for purely linear, abstract kinetic sculptures exploring the volatility of natural forces. his pared-down colour palette led to primarily monochromatic applications, also visible in his large-scale steel sculptures.

The Blue Trees, an ongoing environmental art intervention, has been realised around the United States and Canada.
