Aristotle Roufanis (b. 1983 Athens, Greece) is an artist based between London and Athens, whose work focuses on patterns, textures and human interactions defined by the condition of urban life and architecture.
An active photographer since his early 20’s, Aristotle Roufanis is a self-taught artist, who has mastered his medium through a series of rigorous photographic projects. Fascinated by how humans build the environments they live in, he has travelled the world extensively, creating images that combine meticulous digital editing with a very personal artistic vision.
In 2016 he has participated in Scope Art Fair Miami Beach and in Fotofever Paris with a solo show; in the same year, his summer exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts sold out before opening to the public. In 2017, he showed new work at ZsONAMACO FOTO in Mexico City. Aristotle Roufanis’s work is part of the Patrons of the Royal Academy’s collections, as well as other private collections in London, Paris, Miami, New York and Mexico City.
In September 2017, a photo from his “Alone Together” series has been shortlisted by MoMA assistant curator Katerina Stathopoulou for Life Framer’s Photography Award (Edition IV - OPEN CALL). In the same month, the “Alone Together” series has been selected by Behance curators for the Best of Behance online gallery. Aristotle Roufanis’s work has been featured on international art and culture websites, as well as printed publications around the world.
