Kyriakos Rokos uses a variety of materials – marble, tufa, granite, stone, clay, plaster, wood, bronze – for his compositions. His artistic creation is characterized by combinations of parts of the human body that arise from the basic volume of the material, often creating surreal worlds visually commenting on the absurdity of reality.
