Today, Falis Leon lives and works in Athens. « For many years I had two different approaches to painting.
On the one hand I used to draw cartoons and on the other I used oil and acrylic to paint expressionistic subjects.
In 1996 the idea of combining the two approaches matured and suddenly i discovered the potential i had by expressing myself in a very direct, instinctive and explosive way through the technique of expressionistic cartoonism.»
