Born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece and currently based in Scotland, Christina Kyriakidou studied Contemporary Art Practice and Visual Communication/ Illustration in Glasgow.
Inspired by Western consumerism and wastefulness Christina Kyriakidou makes art that raises existential questions and addresses environmental issues. Despite her being a multidisciplinary artist that consistently experiments with different areas of practice, she often reintroduces the use of waste in her work. Christina Kyriakidou has been collecting debris from beaches and encapsulating it in her resin sculptures called 'Monoliths' but has also been using rubbish as part of her outfit in street performances. Debris is seen as a direct documentation of a consumerist way of life and simultaneously, a visual representation of modern-day stress and addictions.
Christina Kyriakidou has exhibited her work in GoMA (Glasgow, February 2020), WASPS Studios (Glasgow, June 2019), The Old Hairdresser's (Glasgow, March 2018) and has held performances in George Square and the Gallery of Modern Art.
