Born in Thessalonica, Chronis Botsoglou studied at the School of Fine Arts, Athens (1960-1965) with Yannis Moralis and subsequently continued his studies by the help of a state scholarship in Paris at the École des Beaux Arts (1970-1972).  He had his first solo exhibition in Athens (1964).  He exhibited his work in Thessalonica too and participated in group exhibitions in Greece and abroad.  He was a member of the "Art Group A" (1960-1967), the "Young Greek Realists" group (1971-1973) and the "Group for Communication and Education in Art" (1976-1981), as well as the "Etching Centre" since 1988.  He had illustrated a series of poetry collections and written many essays on fine arts.  At the outset he taught design at a private school (1974-1976), but since 1989 he was teaching painting at the School of Fine Arts, where he had been also elected rector.  His work moves in the region of new objectivity with prevalent expressionist characteristics.  Chronis Botsoglou passed away in Athens (2022).
