Born in Athens, Sarandis Karavouzis studied painting (1959-1963) and fresco (1965-1966) at the School of Fine Arts with Yannis Moralis.  With state scholarship he traveled all over Greece in order to study the Greek art from the antiquity until today (1966-1967).  Subsequently, with a scholarship from the French government he continued his studies in Paris at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts (1967-1968), the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Sorbonne (1969-1972) and the École du Louvre (1972-1974).  At the same time he was engaged in stage scenery designing and the illustration of books and in 1966 he taught design at the Center for Technological Applications, Athens.  In 1971 he presented his first one-man exhibition in Athens.  A series of other solo and group shows in Greece and abroad followed.  He was awarded with the Drouant-Cartier Prize (1984) for the totality of his work.  A diffuse lyric atmosphere exists in his work which places it at the area of magic realism.  Since 1967 he was permanently settled in Paris.  Sarandis Karavouzis passed away in Athens (2011).
