Anestis Michalis

Anestis Michalis is a visual artist based in Athens. His work is a contemporary take that centres imperfection as a necessary element of aesthetics. In his practice he creates clay vessels that translate to forms which break numerous rules of the medium, permitting an element of chance to play an imperative part of the final work. His practice is comprised by a blending of old and new ceramic techniques. Incorporating natural elements from stones to organic metals in his clay body which melt and eventually transform to the artwork, while retaining their own distinct composition and form, contributes to the ongoing conversation he attempts with his surrounding material references of nonhuman entities.
