John Bizas was born on Chios island/Greece in 1980. From early age he was interested in fine arts and soon got involved in doing sculpture. The material he prefers to use is mainly marble, which he works in a particular way. His passion for marble is what made him move to Italy in 2008  where he still runs one of his studios in Pietrasanta. Beside this he has studios in Chios/Greece, Washington DC/USA and in Moscow/Russia. In his works the classic materials meets the contemporary art. The artist like to use the empty space as material in his work. Like this he let the light of the ambient and the glance of the viewer to penetrate the form of the sculpture. His concept... the problems of our world (environmental disasters, war, animal abuse etc).


Artist's statement:

My art is the language I use to speak out about humanity’s dark side. My work is my response to what we have done to the planet and all the everyday cruelties we see around us such as war, invasions in the name of peace or religion, or environmental disasters. Many times we don’t see the impact of our negative actions. My work invites the viewer to attend to what we often overlook – both the problems we have created and how easily we could change the world for the better.
The media I prefer to use are marble and bronze. I like to use these classic materials to create contemporary art. Oftenly I mix them with other contemporary materials or objects.
