I was born the 24th December of 1982 in a small village called Ospedaletti, in Italy, but not far from the French border. I lived in Rome, London and Paris. I did many badly paid jobs, but not the worste ones. I lived for years in squats but still I'm not good with door locks (it tells a lot about me). I published some short stories and poems here and there, I write stories for movies. In general, I do what I can with what I've got. Sometimes, what I can is also what I want, and then I'm happy."
I was born in 1975. I'm a visual artist based in Athens. I graduated in 1995 from a journalism school, in 2003 from the painting department of the Athens School of Fine Arts and in 2007 I received an MFA at the Glasgow School of Art. I work as a visual artist, set designer/artistic direction, and I teach painting. My practice is develops around a research on the interconnection between real and imaginary. I use drawing, video and any form necessary to serve the respective concept.
