Another Year has gone by, and what a Great year 2022 it was!
I swear to God every year passing seems faster and faster than the previous one, is it because we getting older or is it just that time flies...
2022 was something worthy to look back to, for all the things I achieved and learned and for how much I grew and evolved in every hard moments during that time I am more than Grateful it made me a better version of myself!
Surpassing my limits last year, sleeping about 3-4 hours a day for months I've put the hard work first and the rest was rewarding in every way!
Last Year I travelled from France to Spain Painted in 4 different cities, saw new places and met new cultures and people! I came back to Greece for Caps N' cans Festival that took place in a beach and enjoyed my summer time with Family and friends only to get back later for the Meeting of Styles Greece in Thessaloniki which hosted by Street Mode Festival and had the time of my life painting with artist from all around the World, met once again old friends and made new ones! Last highlight of the Year was to paint again in Paris before I fly to Tenerife in the canary Islands which I surfed for the first time and fell in love with the sport, relaxed and enjoyed the beach under the hot sun in November and paraglide from the mountains of the island!
Go chase these dreams or whatever you're after! Start this Year, start today and just be what you dreaming, hard work pays off!
' M I L E S ' | BARCELONA 2022
After being many days on the road already I travelled from France to Spain to visit Barcelona for the very first time! Probably my favourite location of this Tour and one more check on my bucket list!
Once again I freestyle painted a quickpiece in one of the most urban spots for skating and legal graffiti walls (hall of fame) the Jardin de les tres Xemeneies or Gardens of the three chimneys. This piece made me think of how many 'miles' I've made because of Graffiti and how many more I've yet to go!
Graffiti gives me motivation and purpose to be the best version of myself everyday, always grateful for everything I achieved so far and hopefully I will be able to keep doing this for years!
' S O L A R E C L I P S E ' | LYON 2022
Following up from Paris my next destination in France will be Lyon a very beautiful City by the river with 2000 years of history! For the session of this trip I collaborated with the Mexican Artist Huereck who now lives in Lyon and we met before in the Meeting of Styles - Kosovo during 2020! Together we painted a Freestyle Mural in under 4 hours and spend the rest of the day in the streets of the City sharing stories and laughs!
One thing I love about doing Graffiti is all the people I meet along the way and the bonds we create, no matter where we come from or who we are we all share the same passion about what we do and Art !
Cheers to all the good times, the things we share and the things to come!
' D R E A M I N M O T I O N ' | PARIS 2022
Second piece in Paris, France and second freestyle in a row! I was challenging myself to make every piece on the spot for this tour in order to develop new ideas and create new things with the only limit being the time! I had less than 5 hours again to complete this piece I think I've made it in 4...
'Dream in motion' is something that describes my lifestyle being on the road and moving all the time for the last years visiting over 10 countries and countless cities in order to achieve my goals and dreams. For me this is inspiration and energy to keep building, one step at a time..reaching further and further!
' F L O W L I K E A R I V E R ' | PARIS 2022
Starting on Tour this Summer with my first stop being in Paris, France where I painted a freestyle quickpiece under 5 hours in a lovely Hall of Fame spot by the river. First time painting in Paris and France in general for sure the City was something to see and magical to experience as they say!
More content will follow with vlog videos from all the tour on my Youtube channel!
' S T Y L E I N T H E C I T Y ' | SNUZ 2022
One time for the City..My City!
Painted this mural in my hometown, Agrinio last April in good company of local Artists: Usic, Spark, Bask and friends.
This time I didn't follow the usual recipe of just painting my 4 letters SNUZ, instead I decided to mix and cut them to achieve a different perspective and dynamic into my piece. Looking forward to experiment more with this idea in the future! Until the next time!
Big Thanks to @raw.damage once again for shooting, recording and editing the whole session!
' L A V E N D E R ' | SNUZ 2022
I had a surprise visit by my friend Spant in my hometown during winter and we decided to paint a wall together as a tribute for our friend Sotiris. Always a good time painting with my bro Spant!
Special thanks to @raw.damage for shooting, recording and editing the whole session!
They say the good die young..I never met anyone so kind like you...This one is dedicated to our beloved friend Seme. Rest in Heaven, we will meet again...

' C O N C R E T E J U N G L E ' | SEPTEMBER 2021
One year ago I discovered this amazing Abandoned location in my hometown.
The wall full of bricks inspired me to paint a freestyle piece οr two looking like one which turned out to be one of my favourites styles of all time!
Love it when the idea and the spot works out like this!

' D I R E C T I O N S ' | LAST PIECE OF 2021
I've Painted this piece late 2021, since this was my last Piece of the year I wanted to experiment with new ways to paint my Style. As an artist I often get ideas of different ways on how to approach my work and which Direction I should get with my Art each time.

Last Year was the Year of Lessons for me! From start to finish I was in a tough place facing all kind of problems in order to reach my goals. Living off a suitcase and chasing Dreams all around Europe working here and there, sleeping on couches, hostels, airbnb, hotels.. Been Challenged in every way but made it through another Great year! I am so grateful for every hard time and all the things 2021 taught me, they say there is no growth if you don't step outside your 'Comfort Zone' anyway.
2021 gave me the opportunity to visit and Paint new Countries, meet lots of cool People, shared memories and stories for days, develop even further myself and my Art and Finally started my first ever eshop.
Some of these things would not be possible without your support and love over the Years, so Thank you for every way you supported me along this Journey!
' O N F I R E ' | SWEDEN, MALMO 2021
Followed up the MOS CPH I decided to travel to Malmö, Sweden to spend a day with my friend Gonzo that I met during my summer tours, we painted a Hall of fame Wall in the City's center in company with other local Artists. The whole session was a Freestyle piece based on my Abstract Styles which is 'on Fire' while Gonzo piece its 'in the Rain'. I enjoy these sessions the most during my travels cause I don't have to focus that much in my Artworks but Chill and have fun while Painting with friends.
Till next time!
' M E E T I N G O F S T Y L E S ' | COPENHAGEN 2021
' B L O O M '
Summer time is over but there's still one more festival to go before I wrap this years up. My final tour will be for the Meeting of Styles, Copenhagen 2021. This was my first time ever visiting Denmark and participate in this Festival, it was an amazing experience to paint between so many talented Artists and the people I met was very welcome and nice. Copenhagen on it's own was very beautiful and inspiring City with historical buildings and modern structures...I really enjoyed my time exploring around!
The event took place in Freetown Christiania which turned 50 this year and the Organizers recommended the Artists to use a specific color scheme to celebrate this occasion. Once again I had no plan for my final design so I freestyle painted my letters S,Z and included a rose in the middle of my Artwork, I called this piece 'Bloom' to represent something that started as a seed years ago and now is grown.
After a lot of positive reactions for this Artwork I decided to make a Print release for the piece 'BLOOM' - You can find them on my eshop
S I C K O_M O D E_ | KAVALA,GR 2021
After being on the Road for over 10 days with two more Great festivals under my belt it was about time to get back home...or not! I just arrived in Greece when my sis called me to go meet her in Kavala, Greece where we spend few days together.
Of course I could not miss the chance to paint in a new location, so I painted a Freestyle Quick-piece leaving my name on the map once again! This piece took me under 2 hours to complete, no cuts, 9m wide mostly side techniques and based on my Abstract Styles.
' M E E T I N G O F S T Y L E S ' | ALBANIA 2021
' V I S I O N S '
Meeting of Styles Albania 1st edition was challenging but rewarding! Followed by Mos Kosovo and being on the road for a few days with the other Artists and People heading to the next festival I am having tons of fun, the only phrase it comes to mind when I think about these times is 'endless laughs'!
The challenging part was they had to relocate the festival the very last moment but the team behind MOS Albania pulled it through and got us new place in time to make the festival happen! With so many Artist followed from Kosovo the new location wasn't big enough for everyone so I forced to change my style formation to vertical in order to fit my given space and that was surprising rewarding for me, I loved how this Style turned out and I am looking forward to revisit this idea in the future!
These things happens during festivals that's why I usually don't prepare any final sketch for such events and I choose to go freestyle in order to have the best result fitting in every wall!
' M E E T I N G O F S T Y L E S ' | KOSOVO 2021
' E S C A P Ǝ '
It's Summer, the heat burning my skin and it's time to go on my first Tour of the year! First stop will be once again for the Meeting of Styles - Kosovo, Pristina. I had a blast joining this festival for a second time in a row, with many more Artists participating in the 5th edition, it was something to remember for sure!
Shout out to the Organizers of the event for another Great Festival and big up to all the people I met during these days that made the event so special!
Videos of the whole Summer tour will be uploaded in my Youtube channel - Stay tuned!

SNUZ ZEP | FREE-Z 2021
Earlier this Summer I had the chance to reunite with my Crew mate 'Zep' and Paint together after a very long time. We made the crew FREE-Z around 2012 in a period of time that I had almost given up being Graffiti Writer and we made the promise that if we keep doing it, we will have to be the best we can be! FREE-Z is more than a Graffiti Crew for us, is more like a code and promise that we have to keep that force us to be better and better at everything we do no matter what! Till next time bro!

SNUZ 2021 | UTRECHT NL

SNUZ 2021 | AMSTERDAM | NSDM
Second day - second piece. After visiting the STRAAT museum and got inspired by all the amazing Artworks, I painted again at NSDM-Hall of Fame. One year ago, I didn't get to finish my Piece there and it was covered the next day by another Artist. This time I decided to repaint the same exact wall Freestyle, but I managed to get it done in 4 hours. Video of the whole Session will be available - soon.

SNUZ 2021 | AMSTERDAM | FLEVOPARK
After a few months off the walls I had the chance for a Quick spray-day in Amsterdam, at Flevopark-Hall of Fame. The whole piece took me three hours to complete, inspired by the midnight bicycle walks I had after work, thinking about Painting Graffiti again. I made the whole thing Freestyle at the spot.

NEW WALL | SNUZ 2021
Due the lockdown in Greece these days it's forbidden to go outside in general not to mention for doing Graffiti, I could only paint indoors at this time until my friend @31stillwriting invited me to his hometown Messolongi, for a School Project that was commissioned at the time so I filled my bag with cans and took off !
Thanks for the chance to hit a Spot during lockdown and all the Support during my Session! Until Next time !

'Guts Over Fear' one of the most important FREE-Z productions I painted with my crew mate ZEP back to early 2015. Just a reminder what it takes to face yourself, your fears and find the guts to reach your true potential and goals, this still follows me today in everything I do.
' HAPPY NEW YEAR '
2 0 2 1
This was a very challenging Year for everyone, with so many crazy things happening in the World I had to adapt to every situation, find new ways, learn and evolve. Loosing my job twice due to pandemic, I had to move back and forth between Countries in order to keep working for my Dreams. It was exhausting, frustrating but in the same time it made me a stronger person. I still made it through as my most successful year as a Graffiti Artist and by the end of the day I just made the ' Best of it '.
Also I want to Thank you so much for your continued support, I am grateful for every single follower I get through social media, my subscribers on YouTube and every visitor in my Website coming daily. Thank you for Supporting my Work !
Goodbye 2020, you made us stronger !

MEETING OF STYLES | GERMANY 2020
My final stop for this Summer tour will be at Wiesbaden for the international Meeting Of Styles in Germany. The hype and anticipation for this event was extremely high with lots of Writers and Artists joining this year's festival even with the circumstances of covid.
The theme for 2020's edition will be 'The Visions Of Future' which every Artist painted their vision, to cover the huge underpass. Due to corona the event didn't go public or had any other live shows and the real dates remained secret among the participants to avoid gathering of large crowds.
For the part of my Vision I had the chance to collaborate with @mateartist @honsar_art @dirtysix6 who created the Giant Characters around My Style. Special thanks to Manuel for the invitation and delivering the MoS in Germany for another Year - Shout out to @spant_one who also participated and being my partner in Crime for this trip, it was such a Great experience!
I will be releasing the videos from the whole Summer tour on my Youtube channel - Soon.

MEETING OF STYLES | KOSOVO 2020
This Year I have been selected to Participate in several festivals around Europe, most of them postponed for the next Year due to covid-19. One of them that luckily hasn't canceled was the international Meeting Of Styles in Kosovo, that took place in Pristine with less Artists than usual to avoid the mass of public and make it possible to happen in a safe way.
With lots of space available this Year, I was able to paint a second quicker Piece with a few other great Artists the last day of the event.
I can't thank the organization enough for the hospitality and the safety that provided us to Paint in this Year's edition, definitely I had a blast !

I painted this Mural during quarantine around May, covering one of my oldest pieces back from 2016 in my hometown, Agrinio City. Watch the 'making of' in the Video Below.
Interior Design | Grill House
As much as I love painting outdoors, I love painting indoors as well! With a different approach from the outside Murals, you can change the dynamic of the interior with a design of Art.
We had no plan about the decoration of the place, I went straight and freestyle the whole thing and the result came up very satisfying for me and the owner.
Thanks for the trust!

SUNDAY STYLES | HILIS HALL OF FAME
25 Years ago, at September 1995 a big group of People from all over the Greece gathered in front of the Walls in Hilis, Thessaloniki - popular Hall of Fame of the famous SGB crew - Skra Ghetto Boys in the day light, without any permission to write History!
The Biggest Greek Graffiti Meeting is recorded that day in the Walls of Apollon Stadium in Kalamaria - '' The event was so massive that the police and the municipality think that the children have been given permission to cover hundreds of meters of wall with paint ''
The history Repeats 25 years Later, after the call of the most iconic Graffiti Writer in Greece Jasone, that Brings People from all over the Greece, to Paint the same Walls during the Weekend of 18/19 July for the Sunday Styles Graffiti Jam , Old school and New school Writers Meets once Again!
'' I feel so honored to be part of this and leaving my mark in these legendary and important walls for the Greek Graffiti Culture! ''

2019 | 2020
Biggest part of being Graffiti Writer is Sketching. I use to draw a lot in order to find the right formats and the best connections between my letters - often I leave sketches unfinished and jump into new ones, as soon as a new idea pops out in my head. I've started this one back to early 2019 and left it unfinished until now.
Looking through my sketches I can always find something that I can turn into a fresh idea.

Due to Covid-19 spread across the World many people including me forced to leave their jobs and daily life, before returning back to Greece my last adventure in Netherlands will find me painting at Nsdm Werf - Hall of Fame. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to properly complete my piece and it was covered the very next day by another Writer. Since I've managed to capture some flicks with just the 'Outlines' of my Letters on Wall I decided to digital finish it in a manner of how I would approach it on the actual mural.

Leeuwarden | Netherlands
If you were asking me where I'll be this September, I could never imagine it would be in the Netherlands.
2019 was full of challenges, staying out of the comfort zone and moved into two different countries within a year was hard to focus as an Artist but very important to develop and evolve as a person. Fast pace decisions and risks with one thing leading to another I moved to NL. ' Before Dawn ' its a Freestyle piece I painted in the Capital City of Friesland to express that every day is a New and you never know what tomorrow will bring you.

BERLIN | GERMANY
Story continues..a broken deal and the chance to paint in Yard5 Festival lead me to Berlin this summer, life is Grand!
The biggest challenges I face as an Artist is to work different jobs in order to raise money to create my art, long shifts boring people can take your focus away and hold you back. It's that time again that you gonna have to make the tough decision, choosing time instead of money and realize what matters the most to you.
Landed in Berlin made me inspired again by the moment I walked around the City, Graffiti is literally everywhere and it only makes sense how this is one of the top places for Urban Art in the World. Walked in RAW-Gelande amazed by the Street Art and the Hundreds of People involved in Yard5 Festival hosted by Yard5 Graffiti Store I left my mark once again , followed by Mauer Park I painted a Quick-Piece in one of the City's most famous Hall of Fame.

-End of a Cycle-
Leaving another mark in time with 2018 being one of my Greatest Year as an Artist and my 15th Anniversary of doing Graffiti. This was a very hard working year for me everything I accomplished based on pushing my limits to overcome obstacles working in daily base to create and achieve my goals the sacrifice was high stress levels, minimum free time and rest.
2018 feels like the End of a Cycle for me and with everything I learned and being through so far I'm ready to face 2019 starting a New one. I can't wait to see what 2019 will bring every year is a Blessing, Go out there and chase your Dreams!
My wish for 2019 is everyone to have better Luck! Something you can't have by just hard work and will!
Happy New Year !!!

' Another Year Passing us by '
Happy New Year 2018!!!
Another Year passing us by...time flies. 2017 started the worst way possible for me, so many struggles and emotional breaks happened during this year. Been through a lot this time so many changes but I had to move on with it and maintain to what I believe and keep up with my life. It's important to have something to hold on and never give up.
It was hard to stay focused on Graffiti and Paint with all that going on, limited time free and moving every few months, but somehow I feel satisfied with everything I've manage to get done. Made my first ever Paintings and canvas, my own website and experimented more.. Feels like I realized more ways to improve and evolve my Style. I know things are gonna get really serious next year! 2018 will be my 15th Anniversary as a Graffiti Writer. Been doing this More than half of my life now...
Dark days are over and I see Light ahead.. I' ve come a long way within one year, Moved in another Country seeking new opportunities and chances, I can't wait bring it to the next level at 2018, hopefully will blow!

I drawed this piece back to 2015...I remember her sleeping next to me and I wanted to keep this moment sealed forever in my mind. So I grabbed a pencil and my blackbook and started drawing her silhouette...I was keeping this sketch hidden for the moment. They say all good things come to an end after all. So this is for you..it's been amazing all these years..thank you for your support, love and trust in me.
