Adam Koukoudakis

Adam is a father, painter, illustrator and collagist who studied Fine Art at Chelsea and Berlin Institutes of Art before graduating with BA (Hons) Fine Art from Central Saint Martins in 2006.In the same year he was invited to participate in his first post – graduate show with Banksy at Greek Street’s infamous Lazarides Gallery, at a time when it was inspiring a broader movement of artists whose work blurred the lines between fine art, street art, illustration and graphics.


In 2007 he accepted a further invitation to participate in Santa’s Ghetto in Bethlehem, before embarking on a busy International circuit of shows, projects, collaborations and private commissions which kept him out of trouble until 2010, when he took a short hiatus to enjoy the rewards of fatherhood.


Always a painter and lover of collage, Adam found a way to combine the two through his early exposure to screen printing by hijacking the pulling of ink & screen, and instead projecting his screens onto canvas and painstakingly hand painting every benday himself.


His paintings and prints have always depicted subjects and topics close to his heart, from early political angst to the unapologetic love of his family.
