Short CV

Petros Vrellis was born in Greece in 1974. He holds a MEng in Electrical Engineering and a MA in Art Sciences. He has been working as an engineering project manager in his native Greece since 1999.

He considers himself more of a "toy-inventor" than an artist; he believes that the most important thing is to find new ways to "play" by experimenting and even by breaking the rules.
