Born in Larisa, Greece.
Dimitris Pikros is an award-winning innovative painter and an associate lecturer by providing his art-mindset foundation methodology and also his 'Innovative Painting Manifesto'.
He graduated from the School of Fine Arts at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, with a first class Honours Degree in 2000 (he obtained the top grades of the year and was subsequently selected to present his work at Art Biennale Athens).
His work has always focused on creating thematic art projects, telling stories (personal or otherwise) that make the viewer think and find out the relationship with the artwork. He is motivated in pursuing life's path by creating art that represents the outlook of the present moment, trying to infuse into the traditional canvas a new dialogue of shapes, textures and elements inspired by our art/ design/ music/ technology-oriented times. The outcome of that process is what Dimitris is now calling 'Innovative Painting manifesto'.
Since 2000 he has shown his work in individual and group exhibitions in several countries in Europe, most frequently in Greece, Spain, Germany, Japan, US and UK, and is included in art collections around the world. At the peak of his success, he retired from the art business in order to embark on an art journey of self-growth and personal development, where he developed his knowledge of Zen, Life Coaching, Meditation and Yoga philosophies. His Zen artwork period helped him develop personally and find inner peace and balance.
He currently lives and works in London.
