Stathis Petropoulos is an illustrator currently based in Athens, Greece.
His love for illustration comes from his passion for visually decoding the written word. He is driven by the challenge of solving a visual problem.
Stathis specializes in narrative-driven painting inspired by storytelling through the ages. He has a deep-deep love for Golden Age illustrators such as Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, J.C. Leyendecker as well as Dean Cornwell and Norman Rockwell. Greek Mythology and fantasy works by C.S. Lewis, Rudyard Kipling and their contemporaries have also constantly fed his imagination throughout his creative journey.
He always experiments with a variety of media to create his vivid imagery. The search never ends as he continue to evolve.

Selected Client List
Stathis is one of the most talented illustrators. ‘Be the Penguin’, the project we collaborated on, was very demanding with a tight time frame. Stathis not only came through as very professional with exquisite work, but also won my admiration with his great personality and I can now call him my friend.

I highly recommend Stathis Petropoulos. We hired him to illustrate the front page of the website we are building. He was prompt, responsive to all our needs, and is a wonderful and highly skilled illustrator. He easily navigates the digital world and makes a beautiful product. Again, without reservation, I highly recommend Stathis.

Stathis is a wonderfully talented artist with a design background that helps him meet client needs and hit a brief spot on. I have worked with Stathis on two apps, each with very different briefs. In the first project, we had a very specific idea of what we wanted. Stathis worked with us to match our needs in his own beautiful style. The second brief was more of a blank canvas and required Stathis to come up with the complete look and feel, we were so happy with the illustrations. Stathis has a unique eye and produces stunning, vibrant and wonderfully human work. He does all this with no fuss and meets deadlines with great communication and efficiency.
