Christos Kourtoglou

Christos Kourtoglou was born in Athens where he still lives. He studied sociology but decided to follow his passion for illustration. He has worked as a graphic designer and since 2013 he is working as a freelance illustrator. During this time he has created images for posters, editorials, magazine and cd covers, animation and others but mainly he is collaborating with publishing houses illustrating children’s books and book covers, while he constantly explores his own personal work.
His work has been awarded and displayed in various group exhibitions and websites in Greece and abroad.
