Painter from Athens, Greece

About me

I make art to fill first my own gaps as a human being and then to convey to the world the questions or the answers that probably found through my pins.
I cannot classify my art somewhere at a specific style although I believe that it ranges between surrealism and symbolism with realistic images.
Through the forms of persons and objects which I choose to paint I try to act in combination and create an artistic result that will confuse or generate answers to my viewers. To have a conversation with them. And maybe we can find the hidden truth together.

Composition, documentary painting and Graffiti techniques gifted me and sculpted my art style.

About my specific techniques

My main materials are acrylic and graffiti spray on canvas or drawing paper.
Mostly I love to work on large scales because large canvases give me the freedom of expressing many multiple thoughts in a particular field and offer the viewer a place to participate in the artistic game.

The region of Attika, Greece

Every educated person who reads about Athens, the capital of Greece, immediately thinks about ancient glories: the place where Socrates and Plato developed their philosophical and political theories.
