artist drawing with pens

 

I continue to explore the limits of working in fine-line pen on paper and gold-foil detailing; All pieces are drawn and embellished by hand and can take anything up to 80 hours. My current works are heavily influenced by graphic design from both the art-deco and psychedelic era, continuously playing with contrast, bold lines and shape to transport the viewer to somewhere more evocative and free.

I love the simplicity and restrictiveness of working in black and white, at allows me to bring something else out of a piece that wouldn’t necessarily have been there had colour been involved.

 I was born on the Greek island of Rhodes in 1987 to my fabulous Greek father and English mother. At the age of eight we moved to the UK, and at eighteen I moved to London to study graphic design at the University of the Arts. I graduated in 2009, where detailed illustrations had played a prominent role in my work and something I would later look back on and develop into my distinctive style today.

In 2014 I moved to Australia and made Melbourne my new home. This is where I began drawing full-time. I worked purely in black and white and my style of work would change rapidly and vary greatly. I worked on numerous projects with clients such as Diesel, Icebreaker, Wholefoods and Kia, and contributed to several books and publications.

 In late 2016 I gave up the city-life and moved to the Northern Rivers, NSW. I'm currently working from my little barn conversion in Newrybar, focusing on producing large-scale pieces, alongside various commissions.

When I'm not drawing, day to day I like to go for a surf, cook delicious things, listen to music or podcasts and session a bottle of red.
I also love camping in National Parks.The more of a pain it is to get there, the
better.
If you have a project you are interested in me working on, however big or small, personal or commercial please get in contact to discuss.
