Jewellery Workshop, Market St, Paroikia, Paros

Nationality Greek

Born Athens

Art Education I started goldsmith work in the family business at the age of eight. I apprenticed for 8 years in Athens and in Canada for 7 years. In 1982 I opened my own workshop together with my nephew Yannis Xenos, where we specialise in designing handmade jewellery.

Place of Residence Paros

Relationship to Paros
My father was from Paros, so my roots are here. I hope one day for Paros to regain the reputation it had in antiquity as the island of art and culture. I believe that each one of us, by uniting our efforts, can support the municipality’s important endeavours in this direction. I hope to do my part to make a difference through my membership in IPAC.

How the artist describes his work
Running a shop and living from my profession as a goldsmith and jewellery designer, I never thought of myself as an artist. Others assure me, however, that I am! I certainly enjoy exchanging ideas about all aspects of art with other IPAC members.

Exhibitions Several group exhibitions with the Kuenstler Gilde Hagen e.V. in Germany. 1999 group exhibition with ‘Arte Ficina’ (see Paros Life July 1998 & June 1999 issues). 2005 group exhibition ‘The Three Unique Musketeers’ with painter Wim Drion and sculptor Gyp Mills at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts, Paros (Paros Life August 2005). 2006 group exhibition ‘Aegean Blue’ in Athens. 2007 one man show at Kunstraum Gallery, Vienna, Austria.
