Yiannis Isidorou was born in Piraeus. He studied photography. He is a contemporary artist and his practice spans a broad range of media including, photography, video, sound design and installation. In most of his work and practices he is seeking a coherent commentary on the human potential for interpreting the world, and at the same time a critical investigation on the utopia for the world's change, and the consequent dystopian realizations of these changes.He is co-founder and editor of the Greek e-magazine happyfew.gr, on politics, philosophy and art. In 2004 he established Vortex Studio, an independent art space and seminar center where he teaches photography and video. Ηe is a founding member of intothepill, an artists’ collective with diverse activities and participation in international art projects and exhibitions. His latest project, another co operation with Yiannis Grigoriadis, called "Salon De Vortex", is a thorough research on democracy, dominance and decay in the post war european society.
He lives in Athens. >>>
