John Bizas was born on Chios island/Greece in 1980. From early age he was interested in fine arts and soon got involved indoing sculpture and design.
The material he prefers to use ismainly marble, which he works in a particular way. His passionfor marble is what made him move to Italy in 2008 - where hestill lives and works. He first stayed in Florence for seminars inart and then at Carrara where he got graduated in fine arts by thelocal academy - part of the Pisa University. His characteristicstyle in sculptures is to use the empty space as material. Withthis he plays with the light of the ambient surrounding thesculpture and the glance of the viewer and letting both penetratethe form of the sculpture.
As a result he creates marblesculptures very thin, light and delicate. His works are inspiredby the problems of our world - like environmental disasters,wars, decay of the society etc. Beside that he creates works ofelegant design in limited editions in which he always uses themarble as the main material.
