A lexis Papahatzis (b.1977, Athens) grew up in an artistic environment. From a very young age he would learn the art of theatre settings and screen printing from his father and help his mother in her ceramics workshop.
Later, he would pursue these two art forms, studying decoration at the Technical and Professional College and the Ceramic School of Nikaia (1992 -1994, Athens).
After completing his military service, his inspiration comes back and is expressed through his work with wood and metal and the first creations in jewellery take form.
His thirst for knowledge leads him to the Institute of Professional Training (Haidari) where he became a camera man. Attracted by the theatrical environment and lighting in particular, he undertakes theatrical illumination studies under the guidance of Michalis Bouris.
