Sydikos is a Greek artist born on the island of Kos in the Aegean Sea. Little is known of his youthful days and even less is known of his adult life. His father was a wealthy shipping magnate and hoped his son would follow in his footsteps but it was not to be. Sydikos’s passion was art. He loved to draw and paint and his dream was to be an artist. Violent arguments ensued with his father but to no avail. Sydikos’s mother, however, recognized his artistic ability and secretly encouraged him. So Sydikos left the island and vanished into the world following his dream and seeking his fortune as an artist. From time to time he comes around and posts something on this blog and then disappears again. We are happy to be able to post his creative output, such as it is.
