What I do :
I create original pieces of art with a variety of mediums: two-dimensional works (illustrations, painting, collage) & three-dimensional work (sculpture, installation). I publish conceptual art books & I design high quality gift items with my art prints. I also do work on commission for private individuals, government or businesses.
My story :
I am a self taught artist born in Germany, with Greek-German Nationality. I studied at the German College for Graphic Design & Advertisement in Athens. My creative journey started in 2002 with a long and very successful career as a creative director in advertising and publishing companies which played a crucial role in my artistic expression.
My year long practice in creating concepts on demand and finding unique original ways to implement them through various types of media contributed in developing a unique skill of combining art and creative concepts even on issues that are on demand.
As a child who was raised in the 1980s my artistic expression is very much influenced by the aesthetics of that decade: the styles and movements in contemporary art at that time, the increasing engagement between art and popular culture influenced by MTV, Saturday morning cartoons, and product branding that was extreme and prominent.
I started exhibiting my artwork & illustrations in 2002

I constantly challenge my creativity and that shows in the diversity of my artwork and methods.
I consider my art to be unpredictable, restless and emotional.
My Passion motivates me. I find Inspiration and influences almost everywhere: it is all about perspective & perception.
Every piece of art I create begins with an emotion: I feel pleasure when I paint and that keeps me always hungry for more.
