Pavlos Tsakonas was born in 1983 in Athens, Greece. In his work we encounter many contradictory references on subjects and objects of the industrial-urban culture, advertising, the internet and video games. He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts where he also attended classes on sculpture and in 2008 he graduated with a distinction. In 2013 he presented his solo exhibition entitled "Wunderkammer" at CAN gallery, Athens.
