He builds his scenes carefully so that they balance between the real, the comical and the nostalgic, using objects, food and pets, as props for action to take place and feelings to be revealed. His work has been reviewed by Kathimerini newspaper, Juxtapoz Magazine, ArtViewer and Art Springboard among others.
