The Artist

"We need new eyes in order to get closer and read my work. Selected orbits and points of my writing, compose portraits that refuse the static. Faces in a face, moments in a moment, places in a place. The idea of continual change, law of the universe, along with the unity of contradictions in space, reveal a personal color palette exposed at the Greek sunlight. A Modern Hellinistic viewpoint about the portrait in a world of motion." 

Thomas Tournavitis was born in 1981 in Athens, Greece.
He studied at the atelier of sculptor Nikos Stefos (1997-1999). He graduated in 2005 from the University of Fine Arts in Derby (UK) with a BA in Fine Arts (P) and continued his postgraduate studies in Berlin, Germany (2006-2007). He worked as a former Lecturer at the Department of Photography D. IEK Volos and as an Art teacher in public and private Primary Schools in the city of Volos, Greece. (2008-2010). Since 2008 has enjoyed a successful artistic career in which he been the subject of 30 international solo exhibitions. He has featured in over 100 group shows and major public art projects worldwide. His works adorn private and public collections in New York, Paris, Montpellier, Athens, Zagreb, Bratislava, Nicosia, Sarajevo and more. Until now, he lives and works in his Atelier in Piraeus, Greece.
