Dimitris Zouroudis was born in Piraeus. He studied at A.S.F.A. He lives and works in Athens and Thessaloniki. He teaches painting at the School of Visual and Applied Arts at Aristotle University. His work is presented in thematic categories and being exhibited as installations. As means of expression, he uses traditional techniques, randomly found objects, digitally processed images and videos, which he combines with the manual practice of embroidery, trying to discuss matters of contemporary art. His compositions focus on the exploration of acts with ideological backgrounds and on matters of religious fanaticism. The correlation of the used communicative symbols produces messages that pursue the awareness of the viewer. His works can be found in public and private collections.
