Born in Ioannina, Greece, in 1967. He studied at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki School of Fine Arts, Department of Visual and Applied Arts (1993-1999). Lives and works in Thessaloniki.

In his work, Christos Venetis draws by playing a game between the motion and writing of the images, their reading and interpretation. Lined up in a row, his 'animated' drawings, albeit fragmented, create a lively narrative. The act of recording these drawings gives Veneti's "anemic documents" a more precise and monumental dimension. Both the subjects of 'bare life' he chooses to design and the bare backs of books, i.e. the point where the content is violently removed for the sake of flow and union of the "film", intensify the cognitive lawlessness of Veneti's images and add drama to his narration.
