Christos Bokoros was born in 1956 in Agrinio, where he spent his childhood and adolescence. At the age of 19 he moved to Komotini, to study Law at the Democritus University of Thrace (1975 – 1979). Following his graduation and a brief period of introspection, he crossed the threshold of the School of Fine Arts in Athens (1983-1989). As a boy, he was already well into painting. His first exhibition took place in the mid-‘80s. In the studio of Kalidromiou street, in the Strefi hill, he created the series “Apprenticeship in Reality”. During the 90s’, in Aristodimou street, close to the Lycabettus hill, he attempted to portray the “Common memory” and the “Temptations of the invisible”; light and darkness. In 2002 he moved to Kastella in Piraeus where he lives and works ever since. In 2004, with the group of works titled “Impenetrable forest”, he addressed the thorny legacy of the World War II Greek Resistance and the ensuing Civil War years. In 2013 he presented the “Bare Essentials” at the Pireos street venue of the Benaki Museum, a call for a modest prosperity, and the rediscovery of measure in our everyday life. There, in 2016, followed his exhibition “Glimpses of the Οbscure”, a retrospective of his work of thirty years. Two hundred years after the Greek Upheaval of 1821, he returns to the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture, with “The Feast”.
