THEODOROS BROUSKOMATIS
b 1963 Greece. Lives and works in Athens.
VITA
Studied in Polytechnic School of Thessaloníki / Greece and worked as an Architect engineer until 2008. Since
May 2013 he is dealing with an art project, called „animATheca“, which in Latin means „soul case“. This project
is about constructing small shrine boxes -dioramas- dedicated to „famous“ people who have passed away. These
boxes, are very cheerful with vivid bright colors and aesthetically belong to the pop kitsch style. Each one of
his tiny boxes becomes a small reliquary where deceased pop icons are enshrined for modern day worship.
Initially Brouskomatis started to exhibit his work in stalls in art markets in London, such as Spitalfields and
Brick lane. In spring 2014 alternate his project – same technique in different subject- exclusively for the Benaki
museum in Athens, Greece. In October 2015 he had his first solo exhibition in Athens Greece. Since then he has
exhibited in many cities in Greece and in Berlin Germany. So far he archives a collection of more than 400
unique boxes and he is still working on this project, adding continuously new ones
