He follows the ancient Greek tradition of being known as, simply, Apostol. In love with art from his youth, Apostol interspersed his passion with economics studies in New York and then, after returning to Greece, he had some international success in the business side of art. Yet, this interference lost out as he spent more and more time feeding his passion for sculpture.
Despite his modest approach to his own work, renown approached and overtook him to the extent that today you find Apostol as the master of galleries exhibiting nearly all works just signed ‘Apostol’. Maybe you will find him in his Athens Gallery, more rarely in Santorini or Florida. When he is hidden from view, he may be sitting by the ancient sea of Greece, or in his studio, creating the sculptures that came to him in his last reverie by the sea.

Greece, Athens, PlakaFIND IT HERE
Plaka is ‘Athens Old Town’ – very old. It was developed around and on the ruins of the Ancient Agora. The local area has been continuously inhabited since ancient Greece. Adrianou Street, running through Plaka, has been unchanged since antiquity. The people of Plaka look up to the Parthenon perched across the rock ledge above.
Like most of Greece, Plaka has seen its period of Turkish control when it was the centre of administration. Various wars including the war of Independence were fought in its streets. In 1884 a fire burned much of the Plaka area so archaeologists were able to commence the ongoing excavations of the Roman Market and Hadrian’s library. Plaka is one of the top tourist centres of Greece, even without any blue sea or beaches, with famed shops and restaurants all just a stone’s throw below the Acropolis.
