Lesie grew up in Greece. Among other cities, he lived in Rhodes and Athens. The last years he settled down in Germany, first in Berlin and now in Munich. He drew and painted since a child. He started using cans on walls with twelve years of age and never stopped ever since. The medium of the wall, as well as the direct connection to the public, are still fascinating him so much.
Lesie is a street artist and illustrator, working also parallel as an interior architect and exhibition designer. This package of properties describes his passion for designing two and three-dimensional space.
During the last years, he has painted only using black and white colours. On the one hand, he is concentrating optically on the power of the shapes, offering his works a strong graphical character. On the other hand, he is creating an optical world with hues of melancholy.
In his art, he focuses on picking up inspiration out of different cultures of the world, combining them often new, to create surreal and cryptic images.
