Myrsini Alexandridi

Ceramic tiles painted by an architect.

About me

Greece is my heritage which I carry with me consciously and unconsciously. On the other hand, Sweden is the place I live where I try to adapt and harmonize my past and my present. My work is balancing between the Mediterranean and the Scandinavian and between architecture and art. My role as an architect have made me understand and embrace the idea of craftmanship. Through this idea I began to experiment with my desire to create with my hands and transform an ordinary material to something different.
