Born in Crete, Leonidas Giannakopoulos is an artist and actor currently working in Athens.

A graduate of the Athens School of Fine Arts, the artist's work is an unsettling yet beautiful combination of early entomological textbook illustration, and contrasting 'Steampunk' fantasy, evidently inspired by Max Ernst, who avidly collected old engravings in order to cut them up and make his unique collages.

He has received an honor by the Spyropoulos Foundation and has participated in group exhibitions in Greece and abroad, as well as designing art for bands and theatrical stage productions.

In 2012, he had his 1st solo exchibition at Gallery Elika in Athens, Greece.
