Christos Kalfas

Born in 1955 - Greece

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1955 in Eleftheroupolis (the Northern part of Greece), Christos Kalfas has been interested in print art since his adolescence. In the late ‘70s he moved to France and was accepted at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Saint-Etienne in 1978.

He likes to emphasize his origins in interviews, saying that “I arrived in France with a new perspective, a different culture and I was on another level than the art as it presented itself in France, which was… a little bit post-support-surface, a little bit conceptual, but in a French version: I think we all started to make figurative art because we were trying to create something new.”

Starting in 1981, he started to take part in various exhibitions and salons, mostly in Lyon, Saint-Etienne and Paris before starting to have shows in Europe and Greece in the ‘90s and more regularly after 2000.

Today, he lives and works in Paris.
