Alex Apostolidis

Alex Apostolidis is an interdisciplinary artist working with image-based media in print, installation and video. They grew up in Toronto, Ontario and moved to Montreal in 2016. They're currently working on a Bachelor's of Fine Arts at Concordia University in Photography, with a background in Studio Arts. They value haptics and emotion allowing the "Poor Image" to shine in their work through photocopies, glitch and grainy images. Their work stems from their personal narrative and their lived experience as a queer person navigating mental health.

Outside of their Fine Art practice, Alex Apostolidis is a practicing event and portrait photographer. They've shot for clients such as John Fluevog Montreal, Common Holly and Concordia's Fibres Department. Their photographs of Common Holly have been featured in FADER and Exclaim magazine. Alex Apostolidis's bookings are available for art documentation, portrait and event photography.

Alex Apostolidis has been playing music for 14 years. Currently as a solo ambient/noise/drone project and as a member of Hang Nail, who played POP Montreal and I Can't Believe It's Not Paris in 2019.
