A resident at Pioneer Works, Christopher Kardambikis seeks an absurd mythology for the future through drawings, paintings, and books. Currently, he is continuing his ongoing Book-a-Month project playing with the book form while experimenting with materials, process, and space. He has co-founded three artist book and zine projects: Encyclopedia Destructica in Pittsburgh, Gravity and Trajectory in San Diego, and 90 Proof Press in Los Angeles. Christopher has been an artist-in-residence at the Art Students League, Vermont Studio Center, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Millay Colony, Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation, and the Pittsburgh Center of the Arts. He received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and MFA from the University of California, San Diego.
