My name is George Siabakoulis and i am an art painter for 35 years and professor of art for 25 years.I was born in meligi a small but very beautiful village in ancient Dodoni in Ioannina and i now live and work in Athens.I studied Art painting in the Fine Arts University of Athens(ΑΣΚΤ) from 1978 until 1983.I have studied and painted many traditional Cristian Orthodoxy Paintings(icons) and wall paintings (frescoes).From1982 until 1985 i have studied Traditional mosaic.From1985 i teach the lesson of Arts in a High school.I Had many personal and group exhibitions in the past where i was able to show my work.Many of my paintings are in personal collections.For the last 25 years i am working on encaustic painting or else wax painting as it is called .I worked hardly till i decide the way that the Ancient Greeks used for that kind of painting.The year 2004 I Published all my studies about encaustic in a book by the title ENCAUSTIC (Ancient Technical on painting and on Byzantine art icons) by the publisher Stamoulis,ISBN.960-351-498-5. It is in Greek Language ΕΓΚΑΥΣΤΙΚΗ(Αρχαια Τεχνικη Ζωγραφικης-Αγιογραφιας)

I use the ancient Greek formula of encaustic.More than 30 years i was trying to find it studying ancient Greek books and trying it myself as an artist , since as anyone knows it is lost and nothing more than some informations from Pliny the elder can someone find for it . I Published all my studies in e book in Greek Language By the title < Encaustic > Ancient technical of painting and hagiography - ΕΓΚΑΥΣΤΙΚΗ - ΑρχαίαΤεχνική Ζωγραφικής Αγιογραφίας ISBN 960-351-498-5
