Our education: Our teachers were highly acclaimed persons in the field of hagiography, such as Fotis Kontoglou and Kostas Georgakopoulos.

Our Experience
Long-running: over four decades of experience, demonstrated through murals in hundreds of temples and portable icons all over the world.
Intricate: we specialize in both Cretan and Macedonian styles.
Renowned: because of our unique creative identity, we have been featured in books, the press and television and received much praise and attention by all social groups around the world.
Our goal : is to produce byzantine murals and hagiographies that combine art of high aesthetics with religious tradition and serenity.
We share a profound love for art and byzantine tradition. Art is the focal point of our thoughts and our lives in and out of our workshop; it gives us joy, recreation, spiritual uplifting. It is not only about labor and tears but also satisfaction and smiles, optimism and hope.
Our passion for perfection leads us to an everyday research of original creations. Through incessant study and acquisition of knowledge, we become wiser and humbler. It is a constant riddle that can only be answered through the endless resources of Christian tradition, thus breathing new life and spirituality into the walls of a church.
