Biography of Sokratis Evgenidis

Greek painter, Sokratis Evgenidis, born in 1958 in Patras. From a very early age, he showed a great interest in painting and finally followed this artistic path, being very active in the period 1983 to 1988. In 1985, Dimitris Mitaras, Dean of the Athens School of Fine Arts, was impressed by his artistic flair and asked him to attend the School, as a special talent. At that time he had already developed other activities and that did not allow him to pursue his dream. Dimitris Mitaras, understanding his increased obligations, gave him the unique privilege of tutoring him at his free time, from 1985 to 1987. He attended freelance drawing and painting lessons from the Russian School in Florence and Rome.
