About the artist
Yannis Danelis holds a postgraduate degree in Computer Science with a specialization in Digital Art Imaging.
Back in Greece, he graduated in Art Theater and finished with a merit-scholarship the faculty of European Civilization in Athens.
Yannis considers the English painter, John Craxton, his teacher.
At Craxton’s home, he was honoured to meet the art author and biographer, Ian Collins, with whom Yannis has been working since 2007.
Yannis Danelis today lives and works in Syros and his thirst for knowledge hasn’t ended: he is currently attending a Master at the Department of Industrial Design at the Aegean University while he teaches History of Art at the Vardakio School.
He is also a very active painter and his exhibitions are widely appreciated in Syros, Mykonos and the other Cyclades islands.
