Christos Giannakopoulos was born in 1978 in Volos, Greece. He first studied Business Administration and then attended the Ceramics Department of the School of Applied Arts of Volos Municipality. There, he met the sculptor and teacher Nikolay Stoychev, with whom he took part in the Volos Artistic Carnival Club in 2000 – 2002. This meeting was crucial for C.G.’s decision to follow an artistic direction instead of a technocratic one, as well as to the molding of the artist’s personal style.
Since then, he has participated in solo and group exhibitions, performance art activities, attended numerous seminars and delivered ceramic workshops and seminars for children and adults.
