BIOGRAPHY

 

Angelo Tziara was born in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1963. He attended the National School of Jewelry (Craft, Design and History of Arts), training, at the same time, in major workshops of Athens, next to great Greek craftsmen, in collaboration with artists with origins from Asia Minor.

Later on, he was accepted ― unconditionally – to study at the School of Fine Arts in Strasbourg.

Returning to Athens, he started his own jewelry workshop. During that period, he collaborated with Greek fashion designers. In addition, he created accessories for short films and the National Theatre of Northern Greece. Soon, his jewelry was exported to other countries – mainly in Europe and the USA.
He continued to enrich his knowledge on international jewelry design by attending seminars on the history of Jewelry Art at the Hellenic American Athens College.

It is at this moment in time that Tziara decides to focus solely on painting. A new period of solo and group exhibitions starts. Tziara is now dividing his time between Athens and Mykonos.

In 1996 he settled and worked at his studio in New York City where he lived till 2000.

In 2001, in addition to painting, he becomes, for a short period of time, the art director responsible for the “Olympic Games, Athens 2004” products (jewelry, porcelain, pins).

Tziara’s works can be found in private collections in both Europe and America. Part of his work has been awarded a ‘D’ distinction by the Royal Academy of Arts, London at the Academy’s summer exhibition in 2001 and 2004.
