Lampros Stauropoulos

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. Upon graduating from high school I moved to the USA, San Francisco Bay Area, where I stayed for 7 years. I studied Business Management at the San Jose State University and at the same time I was heavily involved in the artistic community where I discovered new trends and aspirations and finally my inclination towards the abstract expressionism because it reflects my inner self in a unique and dynamic way. Upon returning to Greece, I completed several courses in mosaic art and synthesis, photography and painting and through them I developed my own style of painting which incorporates the shades of colors from mosaic and the contrast of lighting and darkness from photography. Movements, light and its shades as well as beauty in every possible dimension are the basic source of my inspiration and the origin of each and every piece of my work. Bold colors and their powerful contrast are reflecting my inner feelings and underling the origin of my creations. I am constantly searching and supporting innovative incentives as part of my personal growth and my artistic development. I travel a lot and I live between Athens, Mykonos and Venice.
