Born in Athens, Petros Zoumboulakis studied painting at the School of Fine Arts with Yannis Moralis (1956-1961) and from 1962 to 1964 stage scenery with Vassilis Vassiliadis.  With a state scholarship he later studied the Byzantine and folklore art in Greece (1964-1965).  He had his first solo exhibition in Athens (1970).  However, he had participated to Pan-Hellenic and other group shows in Greece and abroad already since 1965.  He was awarded with the painting award "Hymn to Liberty" (1971).  From 1964 to 1986 he taught at the Doxiadis School and the Technological Educational Institute of Athens.  As stage scenery and costume designer he collaborated with many Theaters in Athens and Thessalonica.  He has illustrated a series of books and magazines as well.  His painting is traced among objectivity and abstraction which complement each other with his work.  He lives and works in Athens.
