Unfortunately i haven't found any english translations of these two poems (you can find some other translations in this link). I will try and give a... More detail
Journey in the sky

The "for a breath of freedom" was initially written in the autumn of 2014, during hunger strike of N. Romanos and was completed about a year later (early October 2015).

BW Portrait
This painting is the result of two things: on the one hand an attempt to exploit a piece of plastic net (which had long been painted black) and a preference i had lately for large portraits. In essence (and not a very original thought i must admit) I thought the net should block something: eyes or... More detail
Untitled (winter is coming)
This semi-abstracted painting was made under the influence of ideas against prisons (the panopticon model gave me the inspiration for the building) and especially the new high security prisons greek state is trying to create.

Ermoupoli -View from Ano Syros
This painting is quite abstract (I was wondering whether I should put it here or with the others in the abstract -geometrical category). Judging by the fact that it is quite possible to distinguish basic elements of the landscape (such as the sea, the big church on the left, the small island at... More detail
Corfu Rooftops
This landscape, using the same pseudocubic technique as most of my landscapes, depicts an aerial view of the corfu town and was inspired by a real photo. When i saw it,  i was fascinated immediately by the inner structure and geometrical shapes of the picture. Moreover, i wanted to create a... More detail
Favelas
This landscape is based on a photograph of favelas in Rio. It is actually the same subject with the painting Fences ( different photo of the same site). Using the (pseudo)cubistic technique led to me to some simplifications but i kept some of the figurative elements like windows, or fences. The... More detail
Ruins
This is a sketch from a photo downloaded from internet. It is a photo of Parthenon (date 1908) by the photographer Fred Boissonnas. You can see more of his work here.
