Since 2013 is member of the art group “PER SE”. He lives and works in Athens. The social field, the game, the collectivity in the context of small communities, the romanticism of the unachievable, the rhythm, the motif, the visual perception, the communication and the language form the basic axis which rule my whole work as a visual artist. The main idea and the frame of my narration define to a great extent the final form as well as the material and the means of the work. The main issue at stake is its open reading and multiple referentiality as to its perception. Through sound and audiovisual installations, video projections, insitu, patterns and art actions in public space of monumental or ephemeral style, the audience is expected to experience the work and thus bring it to its completion.
