His sculpting technique, attempting to link the past with the present bringing together the concepts of time and art, is characterized by “hubs”, which are formed by blending together belts and stripes, encircled and embraced eternally. His sculptures combine modern aesthetic with the enduring values of classical sculpture since the form has the power to define the artworks meaning and mission. The artist strives to redefine the form and hold it captive through time. He is known for using Yves Klein Blue, a color that he finds stimulating and inspiring.
His pieces can be found in major museum art shops, galleries and private collections. Many big Municipalities in Greece as well as abroad are elaborately adorned with his sculptures.
Furthermore he has collaborated with a number of distinguished companies in order to creatively promote their advertising campaigns.
