Born at Petrikata (Cephalonia), Memas Kalogiratos took initially (1957) lessons at Patras with Giorgos Papadimitriou and subsequently he studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts with Thanassis Apartis (graduated  1966).  He presented his work for the first time in 1965.  A series of other solo and group exhibitions in many Greek cities followed. Parallel to sculpture, where his work is better known, he was engaged in painting as well as theatre.  In 1990 he founded the "Cephalonian Society of Art Research".  Expressionist, his work has mainly an anthropocentric character.  Since 1982 he has moved to Mazarakata (Cephalonia), where he lives and works.
