Christopher Kardambikis explores space, process, and narrative through books, prints, and drawings. A bibliophile and zinester, Christopher founded Paper Cuts, a podcast and publishing platform that documents the contemporary world of zines and artist publications, as an excuse to talk to people about the books they make. He received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and MFA from the University of California, San Diego. In the fall of 2016, Christopher joined the faculty at George Mason University. In 2020, Christopher co-founded Cousins’ Books with his mother, Dr. Patricia Kardambikis. Cousins’ Books is a pop-up bookshop, housed inside the family’s Hot Dog Shop in New Castle, PA. A family business inside a family business, and his favorite ongoing project.
