About

Yiannis was born and raised in Athens, Greece. He studied theoretical physics and telecom engineering. For the past 15 years, he has been living and working around the world. He is currently based in Singapore. Through his work he attempts to explore the surreal nature of seemingly trivial objects, spaces and moments, reflecting on the idea that our personal reality is a state of dreaming. He presented work in solo and collective shows in London, Athens, Budapest, Glasgow, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. His images can be found in private collections, hotels, public buildings and business spaces worldwide.
