Born in Athens in 1952 by Evangelos and Katerina Balabanidis. In the 1970s he began to work in the field of painting by making his first steps tricky.
From 1982 to 1985 he studied at the “Free Painting Workshop Veloudaki”, under the guidance of Professors Theodoros Pantos and Petros Koufavasilis.
The themes of his compositions vary. From the historical movements of Cubism and Surrealism, to compositions depicting fantastic landscapes, designing objects every day with geometric forms.
In recent years it has been limited to larger and finer forms, with the pretense of ships (Tanker) to create works.
Today Christoforos Balabanidis continues his work, giving the opportunity through this site to the visitor to know part of his work, as well as to contact the artist himself.
His course and work is mentioned in the “Greek Painters Dictionary” by the Melissa publications.
