Dionisios Fragias

Selected Works


Dionisios Fragias was born in Kefalonia, Greece and lives and works in New York City. Fragias is the only protege of artist Jeff koons- with mentor and protege working closely together on the world’s most prestigious art projects for many years; including an upcoming launch of an artwork on a rocket to be installed on the southern surface of the moon! In Fragias’s own Long Island City, NY studio, he practices an environmentally sustainable art-practice, often utilizing reclaimed metal to create large works. In painting, sculpture, video and performative works, and cutting-edge digital artworks Dionisios summons historical tropes and critical thinking combined with a strong aesthetic sense to manifest truly prototypical artworks that evoke deep contemplation within the viewer and guide them toward engaging with timely questions in life.  The artworks perform much of the conceptual heavy-lifting and release their energy slowly over time to allow the viewer enjoyment of each work for many years.
Fragias exhibits his diverse-media-based art in New York and internationally in galleries, art-fairs and important museum shows such as MoMA/PS1 Greater NewYork 2005,  His work is acquired by numerous prestigious collections and his large-scale sculptures can be found in permanent public locations such as the Hearst-Tower in New York city.
