Panos Sklavenitis was born and brought up in Ulysses’ island, Ithaka. That’s why he knows the Greek sun and the Greek sea very well. When he was little he attended PIKPA primary school, known, amongst others, for offering education to kids with special needs. Until very recently Sklavenitis didn’t know that PIKPA was such an institution. As the artists of the Russian avant-garde Sklavenitis served for many years the applied arts as a graphic designer, until he decided that fine arts is also ok. He is interested in masquerade, satire, overidentification and performative methods. He is closely collaborating with anthropologists and archeologists in order to study how subjects operate in the culture industry and other civilized subjects. Sklavenitis is an experienced teacher, as for many years now makes his living as a drawing teacher. He frequently uses his students in his projects.
