Some people have an irresistible tendency towards exhibitionism of the unconscious, collective or not. These are called artists and this practice called art.

Vita

Studied in Polytechnic School of Thessaloníki / Greece and worked as an Architect engineer until 2008. Since May 2013 he is dealing with an art project, called "animATheca", which in Latin means "soul case". This project is about constructing small shrine boxes -dioramas- dedicated to "famous" people who have passed away. These boxes, are very cheerful with vivid bright colors and aesthetically belong to the pop kitsch style. Each one of his tiny boxes becomes a small reliquary where deceased pop icons are enshrined for modern day worship. Initially Brouskomatis started to exhibit his work in stalls in art markets in London, such as Spitalfields and Brick lane. In spring 2014 alternate his project - same technique in different subject- exclusively for the Benaki museum in Athens, Greece. In October 2015 he had his first solo exhibition in Athens Greece.
