About Sokratis Romilios

Sokratis Romilios is an artist based in Italy whose paintings have been featured in solo exhibitions nationally, as well as in the United States, China, and France. He employs abstraction and automatic writing to express the "constant flow of life, emotions, and thoughts". Romilios creates intuitively and likens abstract art to life, as he believes that it is more important to live than to understand.

In 2020, wrote and directed his first short film "Above the borders" which gained five awards in several film festivals including Rome Awards and Venice Art Awards.

In 2021, he won the Paris Art Prize, in France.
