Thanasis Toufexidis was born in Trikala, Greece, where he now lives and works. He studied and lived in Thessaloniki for 8 years. While he was living there, his artistic quest led him in the year of 2005 to the art of photography. He studied at the Photography Workshop of Kalamaria for two years and participated in its actions and exhibitions. He worked for several years on street photography and photojournalism and afterwards he tried to discover new ways of expressing himself through photography. He has been influenced deeply by his involvement with abstract and experimental photography. This process has led him to believe that any photographic subject should be treated conceptually.
A part of his work is displayed online on the blog called: "They shoot artists, don’t they?" (http://they-shoot-artists.blogspot.gr/) trying to express his concerns for photography and art. He has participated in six group exhibitions so far.
