In 2011 one of his works was selected for the exhibition dedicated to the Italian Academies of Fine Arts which took place in parallel to the 54th Venice Biennale. 

In his artistic production prevails the emotional component that springs from the different nuances through which human existence is investigated. His sculptures and installations invite to reflect on various aspects of the individual in relation to the current social condition, with the use of traditional materials such as bronze and terracotta, but also with the use of more contemporary ones such as synthetics and aluminum.

Alexandros Yiorkadjis is an impressive sculptor and a powerful modeller. His no global themes are inserted in a harmonic vision of the world respectful of nature, almost of pantheistic root. An inventor of images in which he succeeds in fixing the movement of man and the becoming of feelings and movements of the soul".


His works constitute a true spiritual itinerary towards the individual's awareness of himself and of the duality "body-mind".
