He studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts under Konstantinos Parthenis and Spyridon Vikatos (1935-1940). His first solo exhibition in 1954 on the premises of the newspaper Τo Vima (Tο Βήμα) was followed by many other solo shows and participations in group exhibitions in Greece and abroad, in European countries and America. In 1957 he took part in the Alexandria Biennale and in 1960 was chosen among the candidates for the Guggenheim Prize. He was a member of the Spirit-Level group.

In 1975 the National Gallery had a retrospective exhibition of his work and in 1983 an exhibition of his drawings. In his works, mainly human figures and landscapes, can be traced influences from Byzantine and folk art but also from the tradition of the shadow puppet theater.
