Konstantinos
Botas (Pimba)



He
was born in Giannitsa (Northern Greece) in 1966.

He is a self-educated painter, woodcarver, photographer and a member of the
Greek Plastic Arts Chamber since September 2002. His first exhibition was held
in Giannitsa (ink drawings) at the age of 24. 

In summer of 1988 he visited for the first time the island of Gavdos (Crete).
There, he came across the nickname ‘Pimba’, which in the local dialect means
‘over floating’. In The following years, he carved cedar giving their human
forms.

Since 2005, he painted with airbrush, first with ink on paper and later
acrylics on canvas, drawing his themes (nude, landscape, nature) from his
pictures. The last years he divert the time between the island of Gavdos
(during summertime) and New Iraklia in Chalkidiki (in winter), where his
atelier is located.
