Stefanos Simitsis was born in Kavala and studied in the Department of Fine Arts and Art Sciences of the University of Ioannina, where he chose the educational path of visual art and painting. In 2018, through an Erasmus program, he studied in Academia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan.
His work revolves around illustrating human figures, which he places in a crowd. His way of creation derives both from the observation of everyday life and its deformity, as well as from his personal experiences.
What he seeks in his works while creating them is the tension, the contrast of textures and colors, but the mystery which describes them, as well. He is interested in the relationship of these figures, their interaction and their feelings.
The visual tampering of his works with etches on their surface or with the disfigurement of the colors and the figures he paints is something that he frequently employs. A type of tampering which symbolizes the subjective perception of reality and the lack of transparency in the circumstances of human act.
