My name is Giannis Georgantas. I live in Athens, Greece.

For me, illustration equals a very personal visual language which I use in order to better understand my feelings and experiences as I translate them into lines and images.

This language has no concrete rules and does not aspire to perfection only to remain in a constant state of becoming.

It is my personal window to the world of a child where one may stay creative and humane.

The language finds its way from the real into the fictional world (or, the other way around, depending on one’s perspective) where one may wake up and start dreaming, a world where colors and shapes contract, expand, change shapes, split or are multiplied, cut and get intertwined unexpectedly.

Change is constant here as it often happens in nature or in human relationships. Chaos is somehow ordered in the process or, better yet, an ordered routine is rendered chaotic to be created anew.

The surest way I have found to access this world is via a good sense of plain old humour and the humour to face life that comes with it.
