Kalos&Klio (Christos Kalos, Klio Tantalidis) is an artist duo born in Thessaloniki, Greece, where they live and work. The pair has joined forces since 2005 and operates in a complementary fashion, considering the process of working as one, a path more intriguing. Kalos&Klio are represented by Kalfayan Galleries.
