Stefan also works as an illustrator of children's books for some of the most important publishing companies in Greece. 28 children's books were printed, containing his illustrations.
The artist uses mixed media to create his paintings. The variety of materials such as acrylic paste, gold and silver metal foil, collage, acrylic and oil paint, enrich and improve the image of the canvas. The surface of the canvas is treated with a spatula until the desired effect is achieved, then layered with more contrast and soft colors, which depend on the theme of the picture.
The compositions are mostly figurative, the details are realistic but stylized and decorative. The variety of themes is combined with rich colors, texture and a variety of plant and natural elements. They make the paintings interesting, close to human spirituality and easy to master. His paintings are presented in many galleries and private collections in the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, USA, Canada and Hong Kong.
