About

My career

I’ve been drawn by the beauty of fine arts and the design since childhood. Having an extensive career as a lighting designer and director of photography I took part in hundreds architectural, music, dance, theatre and film projects. Worked with colours and shadows behind the scenes where I had to capture and highlight images of reality or
transform them and create exciting sceneries and virtual environments.

I had the opportunity to travel and work around the world and through this exploration I filled my mind and soul with unlimited precious experiences and pictures.

My influences

Born in Greece, it was inevitable and determined for my work to be affected from the hard bright sunlight, the dazzling reflection of the rocks and the unique deep blue color of the sky and the sea.

I am fascinated with Einstein’s theory of general relativity that gravity can bend time and i feel that we are living in a four-dimensional space-time. Additional to this my passion for speed and flight, both offered me some totally different perceptions of the space and dimensions we are moving in.

I am trying even for a while to open a dialogue with something unusual that exist in another dimension of space-time.

My works

After two years in Central Africa I moved to London in 2015 and I am working on an ongoing collection of highly expressive and lyrical artworks combining modern technology with traditional techniques. My artworks are affected from my long experience in color combination, light dynamics and composition.

Trough the interaction of familiar shapes, textures, colors and materials that surround us, new unknown elements are created. They do not exist in reality but our universal consciousness can recognise them and decode them.

I am not afraid to mix extremely rough brushes with fine detailed lines and vivid bright colors with blur and dark tones. I can respect the perspective and at the same time ignore this rule of human perception.

While painting using digital tools my artwork often conveys the same complex layered effects possible with brushes and knives on multi-textured paintings. Experimenting with the latest fine-art print techniques and the variety of new materials I am seeking the constant evolution in this emerging art form.
