Hometown: Baltimore, MD
Based in: Baltimore, MD
Christos J. Palios (b. 1979) is a fine artist and first-generation Greek-American whose perspectives were shaped by two disparate cultures. The artist’s practice is born from a wellspring of insatiable curiosity among themes of memory, connection, and identity, consummated by intimate examinations of history, architecture, and socioeconomics. Employing diverse approaches rooted in research and with an appreciation of metaphorical and physical space, his photographs evoke cogent, palpable awareness through distinct narratives and cohesive aesthetics. Whether constructing Dutch Golden Age-inspired contemporary still life or capturing distinguished interiors bathed in majestic opulence, Christos’ intrigue galvanizes his ambition to perpetually explore new, compelling terrain and share relevant narratives in a very dynamic world.
Christos resides in the American Northeast. His springboard originates in the visual arts with a BFA from the University of Maryland. The artist’s photographs can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S.A, including Linked In, T. Rowe Price, Hotel Indigo, and the Veterans Affairs Regional Headquarters. Christos’ work has been recognized through numerous awards, publications, and exhibitions throughout the nation and abroad. Venues include the Baltimore Museum of Art, Grimaldis Gallery, Klompching Gallery, and Houston Center for Photography, among others. He has been featured in Musée Magazine and Dodho Magazine and shortlisted for the Athens Photo Festival and Communication Arts. Awards include Prix de la Photographie de Paris and International Photography Awards.
