Paris Xyntarianos Tsiropinas was born in Chios in 1987. He is a PhD candidate in the Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering at the University of the Aegean. He has graduated from the undergraduate program of the same department (2013) and holds a master’s degree from the school ELISAVA – Barcelona School of Design and Engineering (2015), in illustration and comics.

He works as a street artist mainly creating large-scale murals. He has presented solo and group artworks, with his group Really? Team, in various parts of Greece (Athens, Thessaloniki, Chios, Lesvos, Syros, etc.). Occasionally, he also works as a designer (brand designer, graphic designer, character designer and 3D modeller), illustrator and musician. His interests include photography, production and direction of audiovisual works (music videos, animation works), writing and acting.

His research interests revolve around Design, Art and Creation, focusing on the design processes that precede, are subject to and follow the creation of Street Artworks and their qualitative and quantitative relation to Design, regarding impact, performance, productivity and user experience.
