Christopher Kardambikis

Christopher Kardambikis is exploring an absurd mythology for the future through drawings, paintings, and books. He has co-founded two artist book projects: the Pittsburgh-based Encyclopedia Destructica (with Jasdeep Khaira), that shows new work by writers and artists in a variety of hand-bound formats, and the San Diego-based Gravity and Trajectory (with Louis Schmidt) that asks contributing artists to treat its pages as a gallery. He has been an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Millay Colony, and the Pittsburgh Center of the Arts. Kardambikis received a BFA in Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University in 2005 and is currently pursuing an MFA at the University of California, San Diego.
