Bio

Dimosthenis Gallis’ artworks demonstrate a unique painterly style derived from his love in painting, drawing, and sculpture of the Rennaissance and the 19th-century Romantic movement. Gallis specializes in staged photography, with his primary technique being digital compositing. His images have an emotional and storytelling quality, addressing concepts like solitude, perception, time, nudity, and introspection.
A self-taught artist, he decided to get involved with photography after a two-year stay in Florence. Julia M. Cameron, Ansel Adams, André Kertész, and Robert Mapplethorpe were some of his influences.
Many of his artworks belong to the permanent collections of the American College of Greece, the Athens Municipal Gallery, the Museum of Greek Folk Art, the Cavafy Museum - Alexandria, Egypt, the Corfu Heritage Foundation, as well as in private collections in Greece and abroad.
Gallis lives and creates in Athens, Greece.
