I was born in Cyprus but I live in Athens(Greece). My work is inspired not only by movements of the 20th century(post-impressionism, expresionism, phovism) but also by the regional Byzantine and folclore art. My inspiration comes fr om a thought, an image in my mind, a fear, a metaphysical need or a behaviour of a nearby person. Many of my works are inspired by byzantine icons or the life and images of religious figures and facts as presented in Byzantine art. During his studies he was proposed twice for a scholarship.
