Visit Christofis’ page on Facebook to see more of his creations.

Christofis is an amateur scalptor that creates themed pieces inspired from myths, legends, and pop-culture. He developed his skills in this art form from early childhood. Sculpting remains a perpetual passion for Christofis, who through the process of “trial and error” has continued to practice his art and to improve his skills set. His creations are inspired by different areas of popular culture, such as cinema, comics, video games, TV series and more.  He specialises in two techniques, one being sculpting and the other one being hand-shaping, which is the creation of figures without using any tools other than the artists’ hands.

Christofis lives in Limassol where he works in social projects of the Limassol Municipality, offering assistance to vulnerable population groups that have been affected by the consequences of the recent economic and social crisis. He publishes his creations on his Facebook page named ‘Concept sculpting and hand-shaping creations CY’
