Sculptor from Zakynthos island, Greece

About me

I am a man who enjoys rough textures, raised withn the pureness and the salty wind of Zakynthos city. I have always loved classical arts, and modern arts as well, and radically i couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else beyond what i do now. I was taking drawing classes for 2 years in a workshop but beyond that, I am self-taught artist.

What was your artistic journey?

Since I remember my self, I was drawing and at the age of seven I started to carve flowers on stone. My father is a stone Carver. I live through my art and I have already a successful career. I couldn’t imagine my life without my art. I am an old school sculptor and the most of my sculptures are made in marble or stone. I create classic and abstract sculptures in stone.

Which Region has impacted your artistic journey most and why?

Now it is a constantly evolving island, extremely pure and natural, and a cultural heritage, since ancient Greek times.

About my specific techniques

My special technique is that I can do almost anything with stone and marble. I really enjoy making classical sculptures and also undefinable abstract sculptures.
