Alexis Christodoulou is a Cape Town-based 3D artist who creates one of a kind rendered art. His work focuses on imaginary architecture.
We looked at some of the artist’s best pieces on Instagram and collated a list of five best pieces. The list is in no particular order and is definitively the 5 best pieces from Alexis.
1) McCracken and the Volcano
This post is the fourth in a series (Olgiati and the Volcano) of images that Alexis did for Gallery Magazine. The volcanic rock around the pillars gives the viewer an outer-world feel.
The only way to describe this image is as a dreamscape pool area. It is ultra-simplistic, yet beautifully detailed.
3) Pool Canals
This image has a water feature looking like a pool that is reminiscent of the Venetian canals, with water that flows through various shapes and features. Alexis added no caption to the post of this image, and that seems to be one of the best ways to interact with the piece: to simply appreciate it.
4) Level 4 Boss Fight
With this image Christodoulou accomplishes a few things. Firstly, the various lines create an interesting symmetry between the different levels of the parts of the pool. Secondly, the levels each having separate colours present an image that contrasts and complements to create something truly beautiful. Thirdly, the caption of the image, ‘Level 4 Boss Fight’, reveals one of Christodoulou’s influences that being video games that he played growing up.
5) The Dream Bath
If you have ever wondered what the dream bathroom should look like, this is Alexis Christodoulou’s answer and he is spot-on!
