BIOGRAPHY

Chris Tsonias was born in the northeastern Greek city of Komotini in 1968. It’s a city with an eclectic mix of European and Western influences, but at the same time a place which has absorbed the Oriental influences of nearby Asia.

For the last 8 years Chris has worked as a sculptor and maker, experimenting with found and discarded materials like paper, card and fabric to develop a construction process imagining, designing and building objects of unparalleled skill and beautiful form. Through extensive research he has created an innovative method for recycling a variety of materials into forms such as functional musical instruments, sculpture, Piano Bike Bar, functional audio speakers & more. These forms have acted as a canvas for Chris’s own imagination. Traditional musical instrument shapes exist in their own right, but are often re-imagined and enhanced with a vivid array of original design elements. Sculptural forms bring to life artistic imagery but also act as a canvas for other artists to explore their practice.

Recognising the often-devastating impact on the environment of current processes to produce musical instruments and audio speakers, Chris has engineered an innovative process, which turns wasted and found materials into one-off unique objects. This process, with its very low impact on the environment, demonstrates a commitment to ecological sustainability and the world we live in.

Chris’s work has been seen throughout Greece and exhibited in London and also collaborates with Thierry Noir to bring to three-dimensional sculptural life a selection of Noir's most iconic images and characters. These take the form of sculptures, fully playable musical instruments and audio speakers.

Music performed on his instruments has been played at European Union events, at conferences and cultural festivals in Greece and beyond. Chris has also formed partnerships with commercial businesses and international brands.
