The First Period
Greek painter, 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.
The Second Period
From 1988 to 2017, he abstained from increased painting activity. In this period, his painting passion was only expressed during his free time. His of absence from professional painting in this period, perhaps hindered the recognition he truly deserved. In 2017 he makes a powerful comeback and is now passionately devoted to his great love! In the period 1983 -1988, he participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad. In 1985, he was suggested, in a national painting competition, in Piraeus, as best younger, talented painter in Greece. His paintings can be found in art venues, Museums, Art Galleries and private collections.
His return in 2017 was unexpectedly positive. In a very short time, he was accompanied by many proposals, artistic spaces, to present his works and technique, inspired by Greek seascape and landscape.
He uses both oil and mixed paints. His inexhaustible theme triggers emotions in viewers, mainly with reference to nature, the Greek landscape and the sea. His paintings, created using brushes and palette knives, express modern, contemporary, free and decisive movements, influenced by impressionism, yet with an expressionistic twist. Without always avoiding contours, but often with an abstract predisposition, he prefers to guide the view and perception of viewers, through intense colour correlations and an entirely personal style. The unique relationship he develops on the canvas with the colours, techniques and materials is shaped a lyricism, which is the result of the religious devotion that Sokratis Evgenidis has found in the unwritten rules of this exquisite art.
For the 2019 he has participated, with great success, in many solo exhibitions in Greece.
For 2020 they are exhibitions scheduled in the following locations
