He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts (1957-1961) under Yannis Moralis and the Paris School of Fine Arts (1961-1962).
He has presented his work in many solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad, among them the Alexandria Biennale of 1974.

In his painting he has remained faithful to realistic, practically photographic depiction; initially involved with images of ordinary life, he has gradually introduced still life and interiors, but the human figure is always present. His compositions, enhanced with a multitude of supplementary elements which show the influence of ancient Greek vase painting, Byzantine art and Flemish painting, are characterized by exceptionally detailed description, two-dimensional perspective, a rendering reminiscent of a set and an atmosphere best described as otherworldly and theatrical.
