Andronikos Sagiannos has been a designer since 1996. He started his creative journey by studying jewellery-making in both Geneva and Barcelona. This is where he learned the combination of age-old crafts techniques and experimental work. Both of these elements are very apparent in his work as he merges art with crafts. Sagiannos finally returned to his native country of Greece and opened his gallery “Makriyanni”, in Athens Old Town, opposite the Pantheon Temple of the Acropolis in 2004.
