Romilios Bio

He was born and raised in Greece. He studied Communication and Public Relations in Greece and Marketing in Portsmouth, England. 
His work is a collision of different worlds; of drawing, painting, and photography. 
Sokratis is a self taught artist. The artist started painting after a deadly car accident in 2004 to heal his post-traumatic stress disorder.  

His favorite medium is acrylic and chinese ink while he paints on newspapers and canvas. His art incorporates the human form and the thousands of emotions expressed there.
His first steps into photography happened in a very young age, shooting with polaroids and instamatics cameras. Keen of experiments in photography and specially on staged psychology portraiture, he creates complex projects on how the conflict between the existential and cultural daily life has a grip on the contemporary psyche of today’s society.
He worked as a photographer in magazines and on several websites such as "NewYorkio" and "Artistio".
