Charos Manolis

Manolis Charos was born on Kythera in 1960. He studied in Paris at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and undertook post-graduate studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. He is the recipient of both the French National Prix des Fondations and the Academy of Athens award.
He has worked as an artist in residence at Princeton University in the US, where he also embarked on research into Aesop’s Fables, the subject of his major show at the Benaki Museum in 2011. Having participated in a large number of group and one-man shows both in Greece and internationally (France, UK, Italy, Germany, USA, et al), he is numbered among the important representatives of his generation. Works of his are kept in public and private collections both within and beyond Greece.
Since 2013, he has mainly divided his time between Kythera and Paris, where he staged his last solo exhibition in 2016.
