I am a multidisciplinary artist from Greece, who entered the world of visual arts through computer animation. In parallel to a career in Visual FX, I constantly challenge my self in various other art forms and ideas, in an attempt to expand my aesthetic vocabulary in the pursue of self expression. Over the past 10 years, I’ve been experimenting in animation, photography, sculpture and illustration.
My work is a visual representation based upon my perspective of social and political issues. I question established ideas of the modern lifestyle and how common social behaviors and ideologies have turned us against our environment and our selves. I want my work to invite the viewer to step back, observe our actions from a different perspective and associate them to the consequences.
Coming from the technical world of computers, I am currently fascinated by the simplistic nature of traditional materials that require hands on work and skills. Experimenting with different mediums and techniques, allows me to approach a concept from different angles in an attempt to create a more complete impression. The intention is to eventually bridge the gap between the digital and analogue world in my work.
