Studies in the beauty of birds
Paschalis was born in 1970, in Kozani, Greece. When he was four, he showed an artistic ability for the first time by sketching a rooster. In the following years he made numerous studies of domestic animals and human portraits.
He grew up in the countryside and had many opportunities to observe and study nature at close quarters. During his studies in theology at the University of Thessaloniki, Paschalis began work as an icon painter. During this time he put great deal of energy into trying to find a path of his own. In 1992 his “discovery” of an English bird guide was a revelation, and has influenced his life ever since. From that moment on, nature’s creatures, and birds in particular, dominated his artwork.
