Born in Larisa, Greece.
Dimitris Pikros is a visual artist/ painter, curator and an Art Yoga/ Meditation/ life coach.
He graduated from the School of Fine Arts at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, with an Honours Degree and first of his class in late 2000 (he obtained the top grades in the year and was subsequently selected to present his work at Art Biennale Athens). At the Art Biennale Athens his exhibited collection received much acclaim thus all his artwork were sold.
His work has always focused on creating thematic art projects, telling stories (personal or not) that make the viewer think and find out the relation with the painting. He is interested in preserving the canvas as a classic element of the exhibit, but sometimes he likes to combine it with interactive art installations and/or performances.
He is motivated in creating paintings that represent the outlook of the present moment, trying to fuse a new dialogue of shapes, textures and elements inspired by our design-oriented times. Through experimenting, in his paintings, he has been interested in developing a process with unpolluted colours and shapes. This fascination aims to an outcome with a contemporary feel and the combination of shapes and colours, thus contrasting the sense of perspective without the presence of the outline. The outcome of that process is what Dimitris now calling “Graphic Paintings”.
Since 2000 he has shown his work in individual and group exhibitions in several countries in Europe, most frequently in Greece, Spain, Germany, Japan and London. 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 Coach, Meditation and Yoga philosophies. His Zen artwork period helped him develop personally and find inner peace and balance.
Dimitris loves developing his artwork and often traveling to India, searching and learning from other sources, and constantly studying the knowledge of Swami Vivekananda grandmaster.
He currently lives and works in London.
