I am born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. I studied architecture in the University of Thessaly / State University and obtained my MA in Architectural Engineering in 2017. Since then I have been working both as a studio and a freelance architect. By chosing to study illustration, I intend to inform my architectural practice in terms of visual representation and conceptual schemes, but also incorporate spatial aspects into my work as an illustrator.
Though my practice is transdisciplinary, it focuses mainly on community centered, interactive projects entailing the construction of on site, inclusive research methodologies that challenge the possibilities of self representation in the public realm. My main interests revolve around poetics and poetic expression as mediums for generating intersubjectivity and informing discourse in the process of encountering the other. I have designed and directed literary and creative writing workshops with multiple social groups such as refugees, people facing mental health issues and recently the homeless community in East London -always in the framework of building an environment where individuals would funnel the process and extract from it the tools for expressing aspects of their identities in the public. Apart from participatory projects, in my personal practice I mainly engage with printmaking which is a medium that genuinely expresses me as an individual and art practitioner.
