Panos was born in Athens in 1976. He majored in Economics and Management at the University of Wolverhampton. His involvement with the visual arts began indirectly through his previous occupation. He has been in the printing industry since 1998 as a third generation entrepreneur, and for more than 20 years he has operated as a chief executive of Label Pack SA (ex-Avery Hellas), one of the leading label printing companies in Greece. Many of his articles have been published in several printing and packaging industry magazines (A&M, Printing and Packaging, etc). He has a keen interest in literature, in music as well as in the ninth art: comics! As a matter of fact, he was a regular columnist in the comics section of Highlights magazine (2000-2001). During all these years he has attended numerous seminars on interior and graphic design. Having extensive knowledge and experience on inks and printing methods and materials he strongly believes that anything could become a canvas! Accordingly, he has been experimenting in various ways of how a piece of art can be transformed into an object and vice versa.
In 2019 in collaboration with Eleni Sfantou he sets up Elephant Design where art, ideas, and creativity become reality.
