He studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts (1946-1950) under Konstantinos Parthenis, Umvertos Argyros and Andreas Georgiadis. In 1953, on a scholarship from the Spanish government, he went to Madrid where until 1956 he continued his studies at the School of Fine Arts there.

Remaining in Spain he became a member of the groups Paso in Madrid and Dal a΄ Set in Barcelona, at the same time developing important exhibition activity. In 1957 he presented a solo exhibition at the Madrid Museum of Modern Art, which was followed by a multitude of solo and group exhibitions in Europe and America, among which were the Biennales of Sao Paolo in 1961 and Venice in 1964 and 1966, in which he took part as a representative of Spain. At the same time, he presented his work in solo exhibitions in Greece. In 1958 he was awarded the National Prize of the School of Graphic Arts of Spain and in 1961 the first prize of the Union of Spanish Art Critics and the silver medal at the “Exhibition for the International Prize of Abstract Art” in Lausanne.

In his work, which combines memories of ancient Greek art and elements taken from the great Spanish painters, done primarily in an abstract expressionist style, he made use, in addition to traditional materials, of wood, paper, fabric and embedded materials, completing the work with gestural interventions on the surface. For a period he abandoned abstract painting and turned to committed art adopting photographic depiction while in the final stage of his creative career he experimented with compositions that are meant to be viewed from both sides.
