An important icon painter who worked in Chandax (Iraklion, Crete) in the second half of the 15th century. There is also evidence that by 1470 he was teaching painting. He died between 1504-1512. As with other contemporary Cretan painters he painted icons using various styles and rendering a variety of iconographic subjects in his Byzantine and Italian-Cretan works. The latter, addressed to the painter’s Catholic clientele, show his knowledge of late Gothic art.
