Alexis Fidetzis was born in Athens, were he currently resides and works. He studied painting in the Athens School of Fine Arts (BFA) and the Munich Kunstakademie while during his graduate studies in New York City (Pratt Institute, graduate class of 2014, MFA with distinction) he explored research-based artistic practices focusing on matters of art and geopolitics. He is currently pursuing another graduate degree at the University of Athens where he studies history of cultural politics. He is the recipient of several awards and scholarships including a scholarship from the A.S. Onassis Foundation, the American College of Greece Scholarship for studies in the US, and the first Art-works fellowship for young Greek artists funded by the Stavros Niarchos foundation. In his work, Fidetzis employs a multitude of media including installation, drawing, performance, video and live animals, alongside academic, pseudo-historical and conspiratorial writings, in a persistent effort to underscore the mechanics of identity construction in a modernist context. His works have been shown in museums, galleries and festivals in Greece (Athens Biennale 5-6, Yeni Jami/New Mosque, Thessaloniki, Mykonos Archeological Museum, etal) Germany (Lage egal, Berlin and AdBK, Munich), France (galerie Vanessa Quang, Paris), Switzerland (Kunstraum Riehen, Deuxpiece, Basel) and the United States (the Pierogi boiler room, DeKalb Gallery, Pratt Institute Brooklyn, the Nolitan, NYC).
