Yannis Koutsouradis has introduced to open-air sculpture a new perspective on  colour, together with the materials of porcelain-enamel on stainless steel, thus enriching,  in contradiction to ‘monochrome’ materials, our living environment.

He has written and translated texts about sculpture and periodically has given drawing courses; he is a member of European Art Federations.
