Born in Athens, Greece, in 1993, Dimitris Gketsis is a visionary sculptor whose journey through the world of fine arts is nothing short of extraordinary.

In September 2017, he furthered his studies by embarking on the MA Sculpture Programme at the prestigious Royal College of Arts (RCA) in London.

‍In 2014, amidst his studies at ASFA, Gketsis seized a unique opportunity to study under the tutelage of Klasse Olaf Nicolai at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste in Munich. 

‍This experience broadened his artistic horizons and set the stage for his remarkable career. His artistic journey includes active participation in various group projects, both within Greece and internationally, including a residency program at Art Motile in Madrid. 

Notably, Gketsis collaborated with Sergio Zevallos for documenta 14, a testament to his growing influence in the contemporary art scene

‍Gketsis' artistry finds its voice in resin sculptures that echo the essence of marble reliefs found on ancient Roman and Greek monuments. 

A seamless fusion of classical aesthetics with a modern touch defines his distinctive style. 

His creative narrative is brought to life with the presence of female figures, hybrid entities, and animals, drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of mythology.

Deeply reflective, Gketsis delves into the impact of post-colonial and patriarchal contexts on our current societal landscape. His creations serve as a visual exploration of how historical forces have shaped the contemporary era.

Infused with influences from pop Greek culture, fashion, and music, his sculptures inspired by antiquity incorporate contemporary references. 

Pieces like "Woman Warrior" and "Social Visibility" seamlessly integrate elements from the latest Balenciaga campaigns and the iconic Schiaparelli corset, presenting hybrid androgynous representations of the female figure.


One of Gketsis' significant solo exhibitions took place at the renowned Breeder Gallery Athens.
