Drantakis Panagiotis

He was born in Volos, Greece, in 1961.
He studied Physics at the University of Athens and Industrial Design in Athens and Milan (Greek State Scholarship).
Since 1992, he lives and works in Athens. A direct relation between Design and the Visual Arts determines his work ever since 1998, when he starts creating constructions that pair a painting canvas and various semi-transparency materials with a lighting source, in order to formulate a perspective visual environment.
This basic formula, enriched via the alternation of different materials and the symbolic function of the surface and the light, characterizes his work to this day.
In parallel, he designs everyday objects in limited edition, aiming to combine full functionality with a strict sense of geometry, simplicity of line and economy of materials.
