Demosthenes Agrafiotis

Demosthenes Agrafiotis is a prolific and widely-exhibited Greek poet and visual artist whose interdisciplinary works combine poetry, painting, photography, multimedia, performance, and new technologies.  His books include, among others, Chinese Notebook and Maribor, which was the winner of the Northern California Book Award, a prize for poetry in translation, in 2011.  He has had exhibitions of photography, paintings, drawings and installations both in Greece and abroad.  He was the editor of the anthology-formatted magazine Clinamen, which from 1980 – 1990 created an amalgam of Greek poetry and art with work from Europe, Asia, and America, and which since 1996 has focused on the production of artists’ books.
