Made On Earth
The word Psyteks is a twisted portmanteau of psychology and technology, his
own “healthy version of artistic psychosis”
When the snow melts in the mountains
outside the tiny village of Stropones, Greece,
artist Achilles Kapsalis can be found collecting animal bones for his Psyteks sculpture
series. Kapsalis breathes wicked new life
into the bones, resurrecting them as fierce,
bionic creatures born of his imagination.
Kapsalis is a lifelong maker, with a childhood full of creating the new and repairing the
old, alongside his passion for collecting action
figures of characters from favorite artists like
H.R. Giger, Stan Winston, and Clive Barker.
He’d dabbled in conceiving his own characters, but until April 2008, had directed much
of his creativity toward making furniture.
