Kostis Damoulakis is an artist born and based in Athens. He holds a degree from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Applied Arts, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. His active involvement with graffiti and tattoo art for over two decades has shaped and determined the references and content of his works. With painting as his main medium, he composes contemporary pieces using symbols retrieved from different movements, civilizations and historical periods. He studies everyday urban events and develops a poetic of the common and the insignificant taking the human figure as his point of departure. His works are included in private collections in Greece and abroad, while his murals can be found in cities around the world. He has presented his work in solo exhibitions held at P.E.T. Projects, Athens; Neo Cosmos/Laboratory for the Urban Commons, Athens; Montana Gallery Barcelona, Spain; and Lola Nikolaou Gallery, Thessaloniki. He has also taken part in group exhibitions held in a number of museums and arts venues (Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki; Lola Nikolaou Gallery, Athens; Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Center, Athens; a.antonopoulou.art gallery; and the Athens School of Fine Arts, among others) and has participated in Art-Thessaloniki International Art Fair (2018). He has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2022).
