How I came to be a painter

 

On a bright morning, many years ago, I made my mind to change my life.

Then and there I decided to become a painter after a dream i had.

Until then the only thing I knew about painting was the name of Picasso.

So I followed my dream, learnt how to draw, gave exams and passed first in Fine Arts School of Athens.

I continued my studies and graduated with a M.A degree in Akademie der Bildenden Künste München(Germany).

                                    I studied and got inspired mainly by Van Gogh, Picasso, Rothko and Pollock.

I consider painting as a way of discovering myself and communicating with the rest of the world.

My name is Angelos Mavraidis born in Athens in 1978 ….and have never stopped painting since that morning.
