I guess that the fact that determined my adult life is the decision I made one night οn the bus, slightly drunk and quite angry, about my studies. And because I never said “I would like to become this kind of person when I grow up” I found myself studying History and Archaeology. After a lot of discussion I decided that I like History of Art… and I went to London in order to study film and media. However, I’d rather read ten books than watch ten movies… And because I had to do something creative, this poised personality conceived the creation of Artcore.
When you graduate from the School of Archeology you believe that you will discover at least the grave of Alexander the Great, as a music professor once told me. You don’t imagine that starting from Archeology you can find your self involved with technological marvels such as the three-dimensional reconstruction of archeological data. And all of these can happen in Greece. How I decided to get involved with Japan, anime and manga is a question that can be easily answered: When from the age of 8, I longed for the weekend to come so that I could watch morning animation programs on television, the decision to find out more about them was quite a natural consequence. Especially after discovering the world of Internet and trying to learn the seductive, at least for me, Japanese language.

My name is Nick, I’m studying Greek Philology at Ioannina and I’ll describe myself through this quote: “The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.” ― Chuck Palahniuk
Constantine A. was first conceived during September 1972 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Since then he has been perfecting the original concept with the simple pleasures of learning (History of Art/Music/ Anything) and creating (images/words/sounds), in-between occasional bouts of boredom, frivolity, and mild self-destruction. Although a Dr, he cannot really heal anyone, unless his proposition that representation of subjectivity can have therapeutic effects on the human condition in postmodernity is valid. He lives in London weaving narratives and conspiring for the unraveling of the system.
Few words about Keunermann: I am K. and I study philosophy at the University of Ioannina. I enjoy writing, reading, listening to music (dark minimalists of all lands, unite!), watching films, and hearing others talking about their journeys, but not travelling myself.
Ηe was born in Thessaloniki many years ago. For the last five years he pretends to be a film critic and survives solely on cofee and cheesepie. When he is not standing in front of a laptop binge-watching any and every kind of tv series, he chases his cat around the house and desperately tries to finish that damn book he has been reading for quite some time now.
Solus Ipse Gherkin hails from a distant planet and landed on Earth in 1968 because of an accident during an intergalactic journey. Since then, he strove to acquire earthly existence but managed to become a human only recently, in 2015. In the past, his alien nature found shelter at frequencies, laser beams and optical fibers inside which he could only feel and understand music. Today, although he is, at last, a human he can do nothing else but to live, speak and write about music (and for this reason the rest of humankind treats him with the appropriate kindness).
