Artist Bio

Angelo Kozonis is an artist currently living in Baltimore, Maryland.  He is pursuing a masters degree in sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art's Rinehart School of Sculpture.  He was born and raised in Barrington, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago, and did his undergraduate study at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois.  There he majored in History and Studio Art with a concentration in ceramics and sculpture.

In the years after college, he worked as a construction manager for his family's business, Amcraft Construction.  His duties varied considerably, from supervising the building of office spaces to negotiating yearly maintenance contracts to finding individuals and businesses to recycle 200,000 square feet of used carpet.  He kept his passion for art making alive by creating collages at his office desk at the beginning and end of a day.

His experience working as a construction manager iterated that influence and inspiration could come from any profession or person and from seemingly meaningless materials and objects.  He uses childlike mark making as a way to make sense of adulthood responsibilities and experience.  While at graduate school, Angelo continued his exploration into paper and expanded his artistic process into video making and writing.  His future plans are to stay in Baltimore and become more acclimated to the Baltimore Arts Community.
