ioannis ntakos

I was born in Larisa, Greece. My work is human-centred. My inspiration is the motion and bright color of the urban scenery and the routine of city life, which are covered by ample Greek light. All my paintings have been painted in daylight, which symbolize hope and optimism for a new beginning.

Graduate of the Highest School of Fine Arts in Thessaloniki in 1998 where I had been taught by Vaggelis Dimitreas.
