About the artist

He studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts, under Georgios Iacovides, Spyridon Vikatos and Nikolaos Lytras. During his studies, he worked as cartoonist in the newspapers Eleftheros Typos (Free Press) (1923-1924) and Elliniki (Greek) (1925-1929) and as an illustrator for the Great Greek Encyclopedia. In 1930 he returned to Limassol and in 1936 he founded with G. Fasoulioti the first workshop in Cyprus that delt with design and advertising, called Atelie. The pair also issued the satirical newspaper To Gelio (The Laughter) (1936-1937). Additionally, he worked as an art teacher in secondary education (1931-1933, 1942-1965). Thematically, his art focuses on landscape, and scenes from everyday life featuring the rural and urban communities. He also painted portraits, still lifes and nudes. He was concerned with capturing visual reality, and depicted his themes with an impressionistic and realistic approach. His personal style is characterized by his skilled draftsmanship and often simplified, free approach to his subjects, perhaps due to his work as a cartoonist.   He was particularly interested in technique and spent a great deal of time researching and testing materials, particularly tempera and varnish, in order to achieve the ideal translucency and brightness of colour.
