Saridakis Manolis
He was born at Heraklion, Crete, in 1961. He studied at the Higher School of Fine Arts in Athens (1981 - 1986).
In his work, matters of texture, materiality, elaboration and rhythm as well as symbolic interpretations attempt to lead the artwork beyond its typical descriptive presentation.
He has presented his work in several group exhibitions in Greece and other countries.
