STEFAN PETRIDIS was born in Germany and raised in Greece. Throughout his life and career (studies of Medicine and Art ) Petridis has felt obliged to transform what he sees and feels through his observations and absorption of humanity, along with life experience, onto canvas, multimedia works and sculptures.


After living and working as a Geriatrist in Berlin where he also completed his art studies (1978 – 1995) and spending 18 years back to Greece combined with traveling and living in various places around the world, he moved in 2013 to Mexico where he lives and works till today in his studio in Playa del Carmen.


Petridis has been excelled and prized by the Foundations of Deutsche Bank and Lichtwehr Berlin and can be found in Museums, Corporate and Private Collections globally.

"Whether I am painting or not, I have an over whelming interest in humanity. When I am not working, I watch, I study people, their behaviors, their relationships to their surroundings and to their own personal world... Some people record their life by writing, I record mine by painting – a living, evolving journey through life"
