Athena, acrylics on canvas, 100x100cm
I'm a self taught artist, born and raised in Greece, Nafpaktos. I started painting around 2014, while writing a novel about Art, in which a painter was trying to seek a safe passage through his past memories. In the process, the urge to live character’s feelings guided me into painting. I thought it would be easy to paint, arrogant like i was, i dived into the philosophy of Art to finish off the novel. While being a published novelist, my novel was turned down, cause “we want some romance” culture. At that point, i realized the sacrifices of all the great artists in the past, so i started studying the motivation of the persons behind the brushes and the techniques. Social status of each era was my next step after feeling empathy for them, and in the end i came onto my own conclusion: “A life without dreams and freedom, is nothing more than a word of four letters." Since then, I paint to be and feel alive.
