He was born in Alexandroupolis , Greece in 1979 but early on he and his family moved to Munich, Germany . He returned to Thessaloniki, Greece five years later where he finished school, worked and is currently living in. He completed his studies at the Department of Chemistry of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki but art won him over. Although he has attended some painting lessons at the ABC School and at the Community Center of the Municipality of Kalamaria, he considers himself to be a self-taught artist. In October 2015 he took part in a contest of the German Consulate in Thessaloniki and eventually commissioned to paint the " Buddy Bear " - the Berlin's landmark statue - which has been placed in front of the German Consulate in February 2016. His aspiration is to keep evolving his art by adding new skills and techniques.
