Christos pioneered his unique artistic style, which he calls Christos is Passion and that he says is derived from his explosive brush strokes, Asian street vendor art, vivid colors, asymmetrical canvas and mixed media combined with his indomitable passionate character and free spirit. Christos travelled extensively the world over and started painting In London in 2000 where he was then residing. His life has been troublesome, colorful and glamourous rather untypical of a stereotype artist. At University in London where he studied Economics he spends most of his time behind his beloved Nikon F2 AS taking film photos and printing them.

Christos seeks his energy from the sea and of nature and natural media. He uses unwatered paints, rough wood, and his technique reminiscent of a primitive, aboriginal, ethnic style to be found in handicrafts and art of ancient years. Christos says contemporary art is thousands of years old and in his naive way of presenting his style sometimes on purpose, as the particular color he was working with finished and had to use another one.

Thousands of Christos made patterns form a harmonious artwork result in conflict. This conflict is what his mind is trying to resolve in search of creating an artwork that in Christos eyes is beautiful. Christos is a passionate personality, a seeker, a searcher, a traveler. His never-ending Dreams of Desires often cause a fiery conflict inside his soul which in turn become a lava of colors, vibrant energy and texture. His vision is to Love Life and the planet, love yourself and dream your desires in a way that makes you happy. His world and reality is a message through his Art of Dreams of Desires.
