During 1914 he studied under G. Roilos at his workshop. He enrolled at the School of Fine Arts in 1920 and graduated in 1927. With a scholarship from the Athens Technical University he studied at the Grand Chaumiere in Paris from 1930 to 1933. He returned to Greece in 1993 and a year later takes part in "The Group Art". He was indeed a singular case of the Modern Greek Art and was especially talented in adapting to anything new.

His artistic carrier can be divided in six different periods:
a) 1924-1930: Poetic representation of the natural world
b) 1930-1934: Green period, influenced by A.D. Perain and Galanis
c) 1934-1958: Comparativeness regarding the pictorial form and works that express sharp figuration and a personal style's quest
d) 1958-1980: Transgression in representation, abstract idiom, informal inclinations
e) 1980 and after: His plastic quests fulfill through tridimensional and sculpture constructivism
He also participated in group exhibitions.
